In aug of 2010 i bought a small telescope to see saturn.I was hooked from that point on. I bought a bigger scope, then attached a camera to it, and it just grew from there to be an absolutely fascinating hobby.I hope you like the pictures.
i recently purchased an astrophysics 900 gto mount and a astrotech 12 inch rc. more pictures to come soon
