Welcome! I'd like to share my appreciation for the wonders of the
Universe. As a child, I fell in love with the night sky, and started
in astronomy at an early age. Having used telescopes ranging from
2" up to 8", I've also enjoyed peering through fellow
astronomers' scopes, as large as 21".
I use a Celestron CPC800, an 8" Schmidt-Cassegrain scope, primarily
for viewing Deep Space Objects (DSOs), but also use a 4" refractor
for viewing the moon, planets and double stars.
I took most of these astrophotographs using two telescope/camera
subscription services, one is SLOOH (http://slooh.com) and the other
Telescope Live (https://telescope.live). By renting time on their
equipment, anyone can photograph the universe when it is convenient
for them, and save the images to their own computer or the Web.
Now I'm sharing my pictures with you.
