Just a quick introduction myself ( Richard ) and my better half Lucy
We are very new to all this, we are also in the process of joining the NLO Society.
I think you could call us enthusiastic about Astronomy and it's associated subjects.
As of yet no equipment has been bought but we are looking for plenty of advise on what to get etc.
Richard and Lucy
