    Hello fellow Astronomers,

    My name is Tony and I am an enthusiast, I say ‘enthusiast’, however, I have not been as conscientious as most of you guy’s I am sure, although I do own my own telescope. My telescope is a computerised Tasco Star Guide 8”. I now find myself in a position whereby I have a little more time on my hands to enable my star gazing to happen more frequently. This said, I find my telescope not quite powerful enough to reach the planets and to engage my interest for long periods of time. I am now in hot pursuit of a Celetron 11” CPC Schmidt Cassegrain. I am hoping this will enable me to take interesting photographs and have them printed. We’ll see.

    I have recently moved from Great Britain to Manotick, Ontario CA, I star gaze from my back garden as the light pollution is next to non. I have recently joined the Ottawa Valley Astronomy and Observers Group where I hope to meet other keen Astronomers and learn from them the long and the short of star gazing.

    Regards

    Tony Coombes
