Hi, glad to be here. I'm retired. I have been deep sky observing since about 1983. Most of my observing is galaxies which I love to observe and sketch. I have a 10" Dob and a 12.5" Truss Dob and dark skies within an easy drive.
I have been looking for an astronomy forum that is focused on observing and not so much on things like equipment and collimation.
Reading some of the threads it seems that I would have a lot in common with others here, and I even see a couple of people I recognize from other forums.
