I've loved astronomy ever since my Mother got me my first telescope with S&H greenstamps. I must have been around 9 yrs old. Then in 1985 my Father got us a Bausch and Lomb 8" Schmidt Cassegrain. Only recently have I become more involved in this hobby. I met a few great people, locally, that were also very passionate about astronomy, and it didn't take long before we started a group called the Orange County Astronomical Association.
