i'm 14yrs old and am very interested in science especially the astronomical side of it thats why i'm an amatuer astronomer
What i want to find out is in what kinds of ways can i contribute to science by doing visual observing with my 5'' reflector and i'm in the market for a 10'' dob so hopefully that helps.
I've heard about variable star observing but i'm a bit scared of the fact at trying to get the mags visually and i have limited equipment basically just my scope and eyepieces.i love sketching what i see at the ep so anything including sketching i will love.
I'm currently reading lots about astronomical topics trying to expand my knowledge but i thought maybe i could do some practical work too, to help me out.
thanks in advance
