  1. I have been interested in the sky for as long as I can remember. I received a tiny Newtonian telescope as a Christmas gift when I was 7 years old. It was poorly mounted and hard to use, but I thought it was the greatest thing in the world. In my mid-teens, I built a 6-inch, f/10 reflector, including grinding and polishing the mirror. I still have the telescope. I eventually became a meteorologist and worked for 38 years in the field. I have recently retired, and now have time and opportunity to observe. I currently use a 30-cm Orion Dobsonian, a 90-mm short-tube refractor, and a Rainbow Optics spectroscope. I am also an avid DSLR photographer, and am learning to get good wide-field photographs of the night sky. I am finding photography through telescopes challenging, and I look forward to learning from the group.
