Just Saying Hello

Recommended Posts

Hi folks just thought I would say hello.

I am a beginner in astronomy but have followed the stars in my back yard for years (decades) and have watched nearly every episode of The Sky at Night. Dear old Patrick is an inspiration and now that I have time and a little money, I have invested in a Celestron CGEM DX 1100 HD, a Canon EOS 60Da and assorted bits.

Got a hell of a lot to learn and at 65 time is running out.  I hope to get a lot of advice from the lounge and hopefully can contribute something too.

PS I did put a hello on the lounge somewhere a few days ago, but in the wrong place (hopefully this is ok) .

Welcome from me, too. Always a bit in awe of those who are into imaging.

As for the age - aw, c'mon you've got a lot left in you yet!

Enjoy.

Hi Dave and a warm welcome to SGL. It's not so bad been in the swinging 60's bracket - just means we need to get a move on and get everything observed/imaged quicker  :grin:

Happy Stargazing and enjoy your new kit.

Hi Dave and welcome to SGL, nice scope you have acquired, going to be a bit of a steep, but enjoyable, learning curve for you :)
