PostSubject: Hi everyone   Tue Aug 23, 2011 2:28 pm

Hello everyone

I thought I'd introduce myself and hopefully mine some information at the same time.

I have absolutely zero knowledge and experience of astronomy but am a very very keen in learning

Even though I have always loved all things space I have never actually got out there and looked up to the sky with the intention of getting to know it and it is this I wish to address.

Infact I never even bothered to look up at night until speaking to Beth (who runs this website) online, always answered my questions, she told me where to look and what I was looking at and I've become fascinated by it. I feel stupid for letting myself miss out all these years so thank you Beth for showing me these wonders and a huge congratulations on the launch of your website, it looks amazing.

I would love to get some advice off here about how I go about astronomy as a hobby in regards to books, magazines, equipment for beginners etc.

I also thought it wise to ask how feasible is this hobby for the amateur living in London (light pollution) as I live near the greenwich observatory.

I wont go on to much or is that too late? Laughing

Thanks in advance
