Call me Al
I'm a fledgling astrophotographer living under overcast skies in Texas.
I don't have a dark site, either, so I spend a lot of time on forums instead of using my equipment.
I've posted a few images from the past few years but I haven't taken anything new since the Transit of Venus and the last full Solar Eclipse.
I hope to be able to learn a lot from the fine folks on this forum!

welcome to AstroBin. I hope you find the time and motivation to take more images and spend less time in the forums :-) If you dont have a dark sky, you can take great images using the narrowband-technique.
Glad you've found us!
Clear (and dark) skies from germany!

Howdy Al! I certainly agree with that assessment of central Texas weather, especially with today's heavy rain. It's just a matter of patiently waiting for a few good nights to get that worthwhile shot! I find that March and July are usually the months most likely to have good nights.|

|Hi Al, Have you tried imaging at Pedernales Falls State Park or Enchanted Rock SNA? The first is a Bortle 3-4 and the latter is a Bortle 3. It involves some driving of course but I do a lot of my astro at those two places. I live in Austin in a Bortle 8 so I know what you mean.|

Hello Al, welcome to the forums. I am also from central Texas! Currently I am doing an assignment for my job overseas for the next year but I should be returning after. It's nice to meet locals who also enjoy astrophotography. I hope to see you around someday and I look forward to new images you share.|
