If you don't mind mentioning.... where did you friend hear about us from? Or is that friend the illustrious @OhNo? I'm trying to get the word out...but my astronomy/astrophotography connections are few and far between since I'm just now dipping my toes into the arena.
I'm trying to get the word out via various other sites... but some of them take offense, feeling that you are competing agains them and trying to "steal" their users. ... I look at it like restaurants.... do you want to go eat Chinese, Italian or French every day? Variety is the spice of life.
