    Hello From Arkansas

    Hello everyone!

    I've read several threads on this forum, and decided to join! I've been engaged in amateur astronomy for almost a year now, and have had my dob since the end of November of 2014. Since that time, I've observed the entire Messier catalog, and am a bit over halfway through the Herschel 400 list. I've discovered that my biggest passion in this hobby is hunting down faint fuzzies. I enjoy star hopping very much. We've been clouded in pretty bad for most of May, and when the clouds haven't covered everything up, the Moon is washing out the contrast.

    So anyway, I'm glad to be here, and I look forward to contributing as I can, and to learning from more experience deep sky hunters. Cheers!
