Hello Everybody! Well, my name is Tom and I'm 34. My father received a Celestron 4 1/2 inch newtonian telescope( an older one) with it we saw Saturn and Jupiter........and it was awesome! I don't have a telescope yet, I do have a pair of Celestron binoculars 15x70 and they are pretty fun. I hope to build my own telescope, and attend one of your star parties. I'm learning the sky and would appreciate any and all help. Thanks!
Thanks Erik, I'm from the city/state of Chicago. Unfortunately I'm working that day, I'm a firefighter/paramedic and work 24hr shifts. But thank you for the invite, maybe the next one. Dave I have been watching your videos on youtube and there great. Thanks.

Hi Tom! I'm not in the city, but Chicago's Bravest and Finest are always welcomed by Chicago Astronomers. Any questions, somebody here will be able to answer, or point in the right direction. Hope to see you at a star party sometime soon.
