This site is dedicated to amateur urban astronomy in the Baltimore and D.C. areas. Here youíll find links to astronomy dealers and manufacturers, equipment reviews, general astronomy resources, and resources specific to the Baltimore and D.C. areas. Although currently small, this site hopes to become a regional resource for amateur astronomers in the Baltimore and D.C. areas.
Now a little about myself... My name is Bill McNamee and Iím the Founder and President of Integrated Desktop Solutions, Inc., a Baltimore area technical services firm. I have a diverse background with an academic career in anthropology and archeology and a professional career as an information systems professional. Iíve been an armchair astronomer since my high school days and studied astronomy in college as well. Over the last several years, Iíve actively gotten back into the hobby and this web site is my way to give something back to the astronomy community.
I hope you enjoy the site and thanks for visiting. If you have comments, suggestions, or questions, please feel free to drop me an email.
