Welcome to Jewel's Online Astronomy Journal.
I'm definitely an amateur at astronomy, but I am amazed by what I see every single time I use my telescope! My best friend in Oklahoma teaches me what she knows about astronomy and what she can't tell me I look up online or in books I've bought.
I recently bought an Orion StarShoot Deep Space Color Imaging Camera. Yeah! But, boy...talk about a learning curve. It's supposed to be for beginners, but sheesh! Actually, I love it. I took my first photo of the Moon the same day I got it, so it wasn't too bad for a newbie.
I love to play with my nieces and nephews, read, draw, play on the computer, watch TV, collect Star Wars toys...and the list goes on forever.
Favorite Sky Object
Right now, Jupiter and it's moons.
