CarlosEH (Carlos Hernandez)

Carlos consistently welcomes new members to the forums that he participates in, offering encouragement and advice. He also adds additional information in response to other posts such as supportive links or other images to compare the observations with. He's very gracious and warm with his posts and help to make the forums very enjoyable to join in on. Carlos' observations and sketches are superb and he's a great example of what CN stands for.

rick rian

He's one of the real good guys at CN.
Great sense of humor, gets along well with everybody, always tries to be helpful and understanding. A kind and gentle spirit.
He hangs out most in the OTO and posts frequently there, (lots of puns and word games), but he has also made many good contributions to the Celestron Nexstar forum and others. Rick's no flash in the pan... over 8300 posts.
He's the sort of member that helps keep CN a fun and friendly place to visit.

LadyAstronomer


LA, we'll call her, has a grasp of a diverse array of issues and subjects, and her contributions to those discussions are always positive and informative. Whether in Gardening, Science, Outreach, or just hanging out and socializing with the Off-Topic crowd, when LadyAstronomer adds to a thread it is bound to become a better read. We enjoy her presence on CN, and are the better for it.

Congratulations, LA, you are selected as the April 2008 Cloudy Nights Star Contributor!

WRose (Bill Rose
)
If you've spent any time in the eyepieces forum, you are familiar with Bill. He is a regular contributor to that as well as other CN forums, and has a wealth of knowledge on the subject of eyepieces and astronomy that he is always willing to share. His drool-inducing eyepiece pictures don't hurt either. Bill epitomizes the type of poster that the Star Award is meant to honor.

But he's also seen in many other forums including Outreach, Cameras & Photography, Reflectors and even OTO.

BillP frequents the eyepieces forum, where his knowledge of this important field shines. His posts are consistently well thought out and reasonable. He answers questions in a friendly, open and informative way and shows great patience at times while helping someone that is learning their way around eyepieces and their performance. Bill's knowledge and efforts make him another great asset to Cloudy Nights!

Bob Yoesle (BYoesle)


Bob is very knowledgeable when it comes to solar filter systems and gear, and happily shares this information with others. He's very friendly and helps keep a good atmosphere in the forums when members get disgruntled over quality control or customer service. He's got a good head on his shoulders and the few times he's exchanged pm's with moderators over posts that were moderated, he's been very supportive and informative with the mod's decisions or inquiries. He interacts well with others and sets a great example in the solar forum.

Congratulations, Bob, for a well-deserved award!
