Photography forum, but I also heard about it around the same time from Troy Piggins, and also had come across a post from IIS as a result of a google search when researching my new scope at the end of last year or thereabouts.

Just startin' in Perth

I googled "Telescopes" I think, ticking Aus search about a year ago. Joined IIS with one newby post. Been popping back and learning from IIS every now and then and FINALLY ordered my first proper scope two days ago. Ended up deciding on a 10" Lightbridge Dob and really looking forward to it arriving in a few weeks. You guys (and girls) do a wonderful job on this site, no doubt I will stay with it for a long time to come.

Somehow found IIS and never looked back.
Very informative, very local and easy to navigate!

I became aware if ISS from a sticker I got at vendors stalls at first ASAW star party. I often come back to check reviews and articles and generally browse with occasional question which is ALWAYS answered most admirably.
