Hello from Berlin
Posted by siegmundm on Wednesday, October 16, 2013 2:27 PM

Hi all, I am writing to you from Berlin, Germany, Europe. I've got interested in astronomy in 1980s and my interest has been recently revived once again and going strong. I like deep sky objects and observing but also theoretical stuff and guesswork such as exoplanets etc. 

Greetings from Germany.

I too love DSO observing and dabble a bit with solar system object AP. Sailing through the Cosmic Ocean is soo cool, I enjoy examining globs, nebulae and galaxies with my Z10 and arsenal of oculars and zooms.
