    Default Hello from Ohio



    I'm 100% amateur hour when it comes to astronomy. I caught the bug from taking some photos in the yard. I have a 26x super zoom Nikon P100 and took some long exposure night time shots of different stars, the moon and Jupiter. When I saw the moons of Jupiter I was hooked. I thought wow, if a digital camera can do this imagine what a telescope would do! So I bought a 90mm Celestron C90 Mini Mak. And of course, hardly any clear nights since I bought it heh. My goals are more photography and video. I hope to find a way to use my super zoom in combination with this C90 or other telescope so I can reach out and touch the stars. Just wanted to say hey, and apologize for all the questions I'll likely be asking for years to come!

    Hi and welcome Dan. Of course you wont have any good viewing until the new wears of your new stuff, usually 5-9 days at least. Have fun when your skies come back.
