|Hi, I have been the owner of a telescope for 9 years now (a birthday present for surviving to 50!) Have to say it saw little use in the first 7 to 8 years of living in the garage. However, once I hooked up my DSLR to the scope and got that first image of M81/M82 that was it. It has been a relatively quick and pricey journey for the past 18 months or so. I now feel that perhaps, just perhaps, the time is right to begin sharing my development. I image from Bortle 6/7 skies with views open to the north looking over the city centre. THanks!|

Welcome, Nice image. This is a great community and the right venue to present your work.

|Hey Paul, ive just recently moved from Sheffield to Worksop. Did you ever go to the Sheffield Astro Society meetings?|

Welcome Paul, glad to see that scope getting some use!|

Hi Rob, I did not attend any of the meetings. Fortunately/unfortunately Astrophotography is an ideal hobby for a person like me. Sharing on Astrobin is about as socially active as I get.

Thanks for the kind words. I am glad to join such a positive and supportive group of people. Hope to share more of the journey.

Hi Kevin, scope is packed away for the next month or so as I am in the zone of perpetual daylight-twilight, or os it seems. Counting the days until I get some astronomical darkness!

|I know the feeling. Here in Oregon, we currently have Astronomical night from 11:45pm to 2:45am. And we are just getting out of the overcast months. We are at 45 degrees which I think may be 10 degrees lower than you? Friends never understand when I lament the long days…|
