I joined Astrobin nine months ago, then did nothing
6 months later I convinced myself to post one picture, then did nothing
I posted a few more, but now and I forgot to introduce myself. Bad …
I'm based in downtown Paris, France, but I regularly visit my parents who live in the coutryside under a more decent sky (Bortle 3 I beleive). I did a lot of
amateur astronomy as a teenager (building my own 8" equatorial newtonian, including mirror polishing) but then stopped practicing for many years (could that be 25?, no that can't be).
I'm back to reason now so I bought an AZ-EQ6 last year and I started imaging with an old Zuiko 180 mm and a refiltered Canon 6D. It was a good lens, and I learned quite a bit with it but it can't compete with modern optics, so I replaced it with a Samyang 135 mm.
Signal processing is part of my professional life, so I'm trying to do as much processing as possible with my own python code. Doing things myself is part of the fun for me, even when it often means reinventing the wheel and getting it not perfectly round
Happy astronomical year to all,

This is the right attitude and way better than doing nothing
It is great to have you on board and to follow you.

Bonjour cher ami francophone,|
le nuage de Magellan que tu as pris est magnifique. Tu en as eu de la chance d'aller là-bas…
Continue avec tes beaux partages.
