    Hi all,
    I am just getting back into astronomy and astrophotography after a 7 year hiatus due to a back problem. I find alot of things have moved on!!

    I want to do DSLR astrophotography with a Nikon D80 using my Meade LX200 Classic.

    Hope to find alot of help here and to help be sharing my experiences.

    Thank you
    Pat Wicker
