This poll is a good example of why outreach to kids is so critical.

I'm 49 here.

Started in the hobby in the early 1970's, received my first telescope (a Tasco 11TE5 that I still have) on Christmas 1976. Drifted out of the hobby (but still kept up on astronomical news) when I started college and got back into the hobby in a big way in 2008 after showing my wife Saturn (through that same Tasco). Bought an ETX80 the following year and my signature kinda tells the rest of the story....

"my signature kinds tells the rest of the story...."

You know, most folks only buy one scope and multiple eyepieces; seems you went the other way.....

Nice gear.

Actually, it's bad on the ep front too! Complete sets of Sterling Plossls, ES82 (in 1.25), Orion Stratus, Paradigm, Baader HD's, etc plus many one off's!

I'm been planning on thinning the ep and scope herd, but it's hard as I can always think of a (very specific) situation where a particular scope or ep will work better than the others!

(And the herd is STILL growing...a couple days ago I ordered a C90 and this weekend will be picking up a C6).
