Welcome to my blog on Astronomy and Astrophotography !!


I’ve decided to start this blog to share my experience and enjoyment of Astronomy and Astrophotography.  When one starts off with Astronomy, the vastness of the field is so mind boggling that you don’t really know where to start.  Then through the years you build up quite a bit of knowledge and skill, it is just a natural consequence to want to share what you have learned.  This blog makes it possible to share it with the whole world !


Don’t get me wrong, I still have a lot to learn, but in this blog you will read about all the highlights and sometimes let-downs I have experienced, how immensely I have enjoyed the wonderful hobby of Astronomy, what else there is for me to learn, and much more.  Hopefully you can learn and benefit from some of that.  In the first page, A Bit of History, I will take you back to where it all began and also tell you about the telescopes I have had over the years.


So enjoy!!   And please make sure to drop me an eMail if you have a question or want to leave a comment.
