When I was a child, my parents took me to a countryside, and there was my first time observing a real dark place, and I was astonished with so many stars and even satellites I could saw with my naked eye! Since then, Im in love with the night sky. Unfortunately, I never saw such dark sky again, but it was enough to buy a first supermarket telescope. I just looked through the oculars, and had a "not so singular" idea to put some camera at this. Never worked in that telescope. Many years later, I bought a better telescope, and I could try my camera. The subject sure was Orion. I could do about 20 seconds at the target...when the photography came to my eyes, I became really surprised....and it was then I fell in love at my second time - Astrophotography. And now I could share another Orion picture with friends around the world...and now I could say "Thank You" to all my friends that, unfortunately, I could never know in person, but for sure I have a real good feeling and respect for all of you guys and girls! Thanks again :-)
