Hello from San Diego

Postby redmanol » Fri Jul 12, 2019 9:33 pm

Hello to all from America's Left Coast. I'm brand new to astronomy and stargazing. I've jumped in with both feet through my recent acquisitions of some decent Explore Scientific beginner telescopes: a Mak-Cass 152 and a double achro 102 refractor (model AR102). I've also purchased a variety of relatively inexpensive lenses (6mm up to 40mm) along with a 2x Barlow lens and some filters.

Along with the Mak Cass came the ES Twilight I AZ mount. A few days ago I made the plunge and procured a Sky-Watcher EQ6-R go to mount.

Now all I need to do is to learn how to use all this equipment! So I hope through the tutorials, chats and looking into participating with the local astronomy club I can at least partially reduce the angle of the learning curve! I look forward being a part of the group.
