Astropy

Hello from Paraguay!

Recommended Posts

Greetings to you all from Asunción! 

I'm basically a beginner, but very eager to get into this beautiful hobby that is astronomy. I do have some experience with cameras, telephoto lenses and binoculars, and I've always been amazed by the night sky which I have analized pretty extensively using plain sight and binoculars, and in the near future i hope to get my first very own telescope!  :grin:

Hi and a warm welcome to SGL.

I started with Photgraphy too and have progressed to Astro Photography with a lot of help from this forum. I'm sure you'll enjoy being part of our community.

Happy Stargazing.

Hi and welcome to SGL - Glad that you found us and decided to join. With your existing kit you should be able to get some great milky way type images :grin:

Look forward to seeing you around :smiley:

Welcome to SGL. What are your sky conditions like in Paraguay?

Thank you :grin:

I sadly live right in the capital city so there is quite a bit of light pollution, but my family owns a cattle ranch way out where electricity is a luxury (and clouds are too  :grin: ) so that place should bring some amazing views, definetly looking forward to that! :D

Welcome to SGL from another southern hemisphere observer!

Hi and welcome to the lounge,

L P is one of our worst enemies, and cloud, I live near Liverpool

and the LP can be a nuisance, something we try to work around.

Good Luck and Clear Sky's
