Welcome to Eric's Online Astronomy Journal.
I am 55 years old and semi-retired. Only had a telescope for the last 3 years but have been a lifelong astronomy nut. We live at a fairly high light polluted area. I take my scope monthly about 30 miles inland to a friend's home in Ramona, CA where the sky is much darker.
Favorite Sky Object
M11, the "Wild Duck" cluster astounded me the first time I viewed it.
Experience: 2-4 Years
Astrophotography: No, I do not take pictures through my telescope
Where I live
Comments about where I live
We have low-sodium streetlights because of the Palomar Mountain observatory, located about 30 miles away. We have fairly high light pollution. San Diego is to the south and we are in the suburbs here.
