Welcome to Dan's Online Astronomy Journal.
Hi, this site is a great idea. Astronomy is a fascinating hobby and I'm hoping to both learn from the experiences of the other people here and also share what I've found out myself.
I live with my girlfriend and two dogs, and my work is "something to do with computers".
Apart from astronomy I enjoy walking in the countryside, collecting old books and sometimes listening to weird music.
My main hangout on the Web is
and its discussion forum
Favorite Sky Object
Without a doubt the Moon. It's amazing to have another world so close by and be able to see such detail on it with even a small telescope. There's always something new to learn about it.
Experience: 1-2 Years
Astrophotography: Yes, I do take pictures through my telescope
Where I live
Comments about where I live
Although this is the second largest city in England, it is strangely full of open countryside and we can walk for hours from our door.
