Welcome to Tony's Online Astronomy Journal.
Hey... thanks for stopping by. It may be a while before anything of real interest is posted here since I am a novice at astronomy.
I am an absolute beginner at astronomy. My telescope is a 70mm refractor that my wife bought me for Christmas. I had a love of space as a very young boy growing up in the age of Apollo missions and the first landing of a man on the moon. So, this little telescope has renewed an old dormant interest and now I'm contemplating buying a much nicer telescope in the 10" to 12" inch range.

Comments about where I live
The good news... I live in the country away from large cities. The bad news... within 8 miles of my home there is a large steel mill which SERIOUSLY pollutes the eastern skies. On top of that, our neighbors installed a security street light just across the road. Seems light pollution is everywhere these days.
