I'm a 57 years old man from Nokia (town), Finland.
I've been interested on/off about astronomy since about 6 years old, but haven't had a telescope until now.
I've always been interested in science and engineering, and read a lot.
I write embedded
I'm also interested in building some own gadgets.
I'm interested in deep sky, and to some extent, planets. but who knows where my journey leads me to.
When I bought the "tube", I was interested in visual observations, but before I have got a chance to see something
(it's pretty light here in Finland now even in the nights) I've already started to get interested in photography too.
Also as a teen, I was interested of D.I.Y spectroscopy, and that might pop up later.
The "tube" I got is OrionOptics VX12, A bit "heavy" for a starter scope, but...
