I am an engineer working in the semiconductor industry. I live, play, and work in Austin, TX. I have been involved in amateur astronomy for about 11 years.
All my telescopes are of the "go to" variety which means that they are computer controlled and will "go to" objects in the objects catalog after aligning the mount to 2-3 stars.
I currently own the following telescopes:
Orion Skyquest XTg12 Dobson (truss Dob, computerized and tracks)
Celestron Nexstar 80GT refractor
Celestron Nexstar Evolution 8 (my favorite for sidewalk astronomy)
Celestron Nexstar 102SLT refractor
