Ever since I was a child, I have been interested in the stars. I once watched an entire lunar eclipse from start to finish... It took almost all night! Now, I continue the tradition of staring at the stars, especially when I visit the White Mountains.
For my star gazing, it would be nice if I had a telescope or other equipment. That is why astronomy classified is such a good thing. They specialize in used equipment. It is still high quality, just not as expensive.
