    I am a 73 y/o astroimager. I first became interested in astronomy in 1979 when a friend of my Wife gave me a exquisitely hand figured 8" f/4 Newtonian (you had to have know George [PhD Physics]). Three years later I commissioned a 14.25" classical Cassegrain mounted on one of Tom Mathis' first fork mounts.

    Things change and in 1985 I donated the scope/mount to the San Jose Astronomical Association.

    Things change again and in the late oughts I had accumulated a fantastic imaging rig: APM/TMB 152/1200, Paramount ME, QSI 632 & ST402 guider.

    Once more, things change and I sold everything except for the APM/TMB. Finally, after being forced into retirement, I decided to get back into astrophotography and I traded the APM/TMB and bought a Celestron C11/CGX which I am now learning how to use.
