Hi, my name is Rishi and I live in the Netherlands.|
I am located in the area we refer to as "The Randstad" which is a conglomerate of all the cities in central Netherlands very close to Schiphol airport.
Fortunately I live outside a village in farmland so not too much direct licht but a lot of background light from the huge greenhouses, airport and cities.
Started off with a Star Adventurer and my wifes EOS 6D and assorted lenses
Skywatcher 8" Dobson
Williams Optics ZS61
HEQ 5 Pro
……..(I think you all know how this continues)
Still using a DSLR (6D and 450D non modified)
Contemplating going mono.
Now waiting for clear sky's. The only clear night we have had here recently was during the lunar eclipse.

Drenthe is one of the places you have to go one time..great dark places here. but some good filters will do the trick too.

Still haven't been able to use the Williams Optics in anger. It does really need the Flat61 to give a decent image across the whole image.
Its really nicely built with a nice focuser and a great size. Really the ultimate grab and go.
