Speaker Bio:

I have been interested in Astronomy since I was in school.  I joined OAS in December 2013.  I bought my first telescope in July 2014.  It is a Celestron Nexstar 130 SLT.  I have been using the Nexstar and binoculars for most of my stargazing.  I also enjoy helping out with the outreach program.
