I consider myself an enthusiastic amateur. I love observing the Sun, Moon, Milky Way and atmospheric phenomena. I dabble at astrophotography but like to keep it simple imaging (mostly) without the hassle of taking multiple lights, dark's, flat's etc. Instead I enjoy the challenge of single image capture's with a modest set-up. I also have fun sharing the image from the telescope using live video projection on a tablet, there is nothing better than sharing a view of Jupiter or the Moon with a group of youngsters. (My Profile image is of the star Sirius which was created by using a long exposure and moving the camera during the exposure. I then got creative in Photoshop)
