Hello from Tucson, AZ

Recommended Posts

Greetings everyone, from Tucson, AZ. My name is Tom and have been playing on and off with astronomy since I was a kid. Currently have a lot going on, planning a telescope dolly build soon for my CPC-1100. Just to save my back at this point and the sweat and tears of lifting all the gear. Will post pictures when I actually start it. Love the visual observing but getting more in to the astrophotography now and seeing the black hole in my wallet getting larger.

Hello Tom, welcome to SGL! I had the CPC 1100, unfortunately it almost killed me twice while carrying it down my steps, loved it but, I had to part ways.

If you can leave it assembled and, just wheel it out then you're gold, enjoy it!.

Hi Tom! Bet you have some wonderful dark skies there in AZ. I generally go running outside in joy here with my scope when the cloud and rain passes. A big scope in the desert would be bliss, as long as the scorpions stay back!

Hello Tom. I've been to Tucson a few times and called at Starizona, plus visited some of the observatories. I really liked the place.

Welcome Tom!

The black hole in your wallet will only get larger unfortunately as you get further into Astrophotography, but it’s worth it! 

 

I bet those AZ skies are amazing. The UK is 98% permanent cloud.
