Looking for individuals or even a small group in my area in Citrus County Florida. It was suggested in the beginners forum that I post here.

I've checked all the sites for the larger groups and unfortunately they are all a lengthy drive away so this is just an attempt to connect with someone locally. Thanks!

Hey I appreciate it! Chiefland is where I'll end up. They had some impressive observatories and observing site. Some of those are no longer active, I don't even know how many hours I've spent pouring over google results trying to find an astronomy buddy. I'm hoping I'll meet someone local at the next new moon meeting in Chiefland. thanks again!

Anytime. Although Chiefland is not an astronomy club, every new moon there is a good turnout. You should meet several people out there. Have fun!
