Hello Haseeb,

I just wanted to say you wrote a wonderful first light report that was not only a report but also a wonderful story! I felt like I was observing there with you and it was heartwarming to read how you shared the excitement with your family. I wish you many many wonderful observing sessions and it sounds like you are off to a grand start!

Best regards,

John Miele

Thank you Olivier, CN. A pleasant surprise to see my first light report up.

Thank you John for your kind words. Honestly, after reading some of other reviews, I felt my review should not be up there, but now that it's there, I am glad. I am glad because newbies like myself would feel encouraged to bring our more reviews of their equipment and share their knowledge, however minimal but useful for other newcomers to read. Cloudynights truly rocks and so do the members and the mods. :D
