Astrophotography
 
Well, I got into this in August of 2007, my sister lent me her 8” Celestron SCT so I could tinker a bit with taking some deep space pictures.  Well that failed completely.  It was obvious that I had (and still have) al lot to learn.
 
I bought my self some entry level telescopes, an equatorial mount, a DSI Pro CCD camera and started to learn how to do this.
 
These pages will show the better images I’ve been able to capture and will hopefully show improvement as I learn more and build some experience.  So have a look at the image gallery.  I’ve also posted pictures of the equipment set up and how I modified my DSI Pro camera if you’re interested. Also have a look at my blog. I recently set it up to provide comments on mistakes I've made, lessons learned, DIY projects, my opinions on various astro gear, etc. Link to the blog is to the left.
 
Nothin’ but fun!!
