Hi all,

My name is Matt Dieterich and I have been involved in astrophotography since 2006. I currently work for PlaneWave Instruments as their Tech Services Manager. I help client's install their observatory equipment and make sure they are trained on our software. I am looking forward to posting more here as it has been since 2015 when I last uploaded an image!

Best regards,

Matt Dieterich

Hey Matt.

We must be neighbors. I live over by North Park. How crazy are these clouds?

Absolutely! Most of my work is from outside the state since the clouds and light pollution =) I hope to get down to Spruce Knob next month in West Virginia to do some shooting. I used to go there many times a year for astro.

I have a Celestron EdgeHD 8" on a CGX, a WO Redcat 51 on  Rainbow Astro 135, and my new scope that I'm still trying to get right is a TPO RC8 on a 10Micron  GM1000HPS. Still messing with collimation on that one so no images on Astrobin with it yet.

I imagine you're using big awesome RC's right?

Awesome setup Tim! We will have to meet up for a coffee sometime and chat astro. I have been using a CDK24 that is setup at ObsTech in Chile when the client offers me free time to image. Aside from that I mainly do wide field nightscapes and timelapses of the Milky Way when I can.
