    Default Hello!



    I'm glad to be part of the Forum. I have always had an interest in astronomy with my peak interest and knowledge dating to the age of twelve in 1969. I had a Tasco refractor and I could see the rings of Saturn, and look at the Sun through the included Solar Filter (Yikes).
    I only recently have had time in my life to get back into it and, WOW!! I want everything I see. And the knowledge available on the Web is astounding. I want to get myself a really good telescope on an equatorial mount with as many bells and whistles as I can afford. My new hobby is astrophotography! I have many questions and look forward to being able to benefit from the knowledge of others instead of toiling away with library books and questionable optics systems and training.

    Thanks

    to this forum, and good to see another Canadian joining us. You'll have to wait for the smoke from the fires to clear before you do any astrophotography, so check out our imaging forum.
