Hi Ara. I like astronomy also. I don't know much about it(technical/scholarly) but I hope to get a telescope some day. Perchance you might suggest one that's decent but not expensive.
I spent two years getting through high school but I used to haunt the library so I lay no claim to much(actually very little) formal education or accomplishment/recognition/ attainment.
I find some of the things you write insightful and pointed. I don't agree with everything though.
I wish you well and my hopes are for blessings for you and yours.
Sincerely , as ever
