Hi from the Western Missouri
Posted by Tony383 on Monday, October 28, 2013 7:31 PM

Hi everyone.  Just wanted to re-introduce myself after being off this forum for several years.  I own a fairly large dobsonian, binoculars, and some basic imaging equipment, but most importantly I just love being outside using my bare eyes.  They are used regularly at a dark sky site owned by the Astronomical Society of Kansas City about 50 miles from my home where I spend many new moon weekends.  Hope to talk to you soon...

  I also have a dark sky site about 40 miles away and have sympathy for anyone who does not have one available. Without this site, I would have gotten out of the hobby some 50 years ago.

  BTW, Welcome to the forums once again.

Yes, finding a local club was really important to me. Even if your club doesn't own a DSS, they generally have regular gatherings within a close distance where a person can get some good views.
