It's Twitter time.

You can now follow me on Twitter and ask various astronomy question there, too. Yay, technology!

Username: "astronomer_mike"


  1. So now twitter has astronomer_mike and astro_mike (http://twitter.com/Astro_Mike) .... lol. I found that ironic.

  2. Hi Mike,

    I got a question thought chances are your been asked this a million times, I am thinking of getting a new telescope but I want a really good one for moon watching, what would you say is a good telescope for this?

  3. couldnt find you as "astronomer_mike" on twitter! just thought I'd mention this in case anyone else is having the same "no return" from twitter! ps Love you site!

  4. Chiccoreal:

    Thanks for the info...that's weird that it's not coming up in search, though. Even not signed in, I can still see my profile:


    ...can you?


    This is actually a pretty good question. A couple people have asked me about telescopes over email, but I just did a private email response specific to their needs.

    At this point, though, it seems like there's enough interest that I should do a whole post about it, answering it generally.
