Hello fellow enthusiast.,
I’m David, from Pearland Texas, just south of Houston. I’m forty-eight years old, with a beautiful wife, three children and a wonderful grandson. And every since I was a kid, and watched Captain Kirk kicking alien butts, I’ve been interested in space, Sci-Fi, and even UFO-ology. I’ve never owned a telescope. But now that the kids are gone and out of school, I finally made the plunge last Friday. Lucky for me I work with someone that belongs to the Houston Area Astronomical Society. And also lucky for me, this gentleman owned two very nice telescopes. Key word being “owned”. Because I bought his eight inch Meade reflector telescope. He kept his ten inch. I only wished I had done this years ago. It is truly amazing checking out the moon and Mars. With the Mar’s opposition occurring now, and the fact that my five year old grandson is showing a real interest in astronomy these days, I knew I had to make a purchase quick. And I did so with no regrets. Tomorrow I’m having several of my friends and family over for rib-eyed steaks and Mar’s watching. I’m REALLY looking forward to showing off my new telescope.
So here’s a big howdy from Texas, David
