Hi, from the Netherlands!

Hi everybody!

My name is Jenke, and I live in the Netherlands, not far from Utrecht (so a lot of light pollution). Somewhat more than two years ago I re-activated my hobby from 30 years ago, and that is astronomy. Due to the fact that I decided to do an undergrad in econometrics (instead of astronomy) I had much less time to remain active in following all kinds of developments in astronomy. I grew up in an area of the Netherlands (Twente) with dark skies, so I never lost interest in the sky.More than 2 years ago I bought a new telescope (6 inch Celestron Nexstar)), and was impressed by all the digital developments in this field (I had a very small refractor from my childhood). What was hardly possible in the past (making pictures of deep sky objects), had become possible. Therefore, I decided to buy a first CCD camera (Atik Infinity) in order to practice. Recently, I decided to accelerate, and bought a new scope (Zenithstar 126) and a new camera (ASI 1600mm pro mono), and now I hope to learn from you in future by sharing my pictures.

Kind regards
