I developed an interest in astronomy over three decades ago when I helped build an 8 inch reflector and spent a season observing some of the main deep sky wonders and viewing the planets. But then the rest of life intervened and I had my nose to the grindstone rather than pointing to the stars... However, over the last few years, I have rekindled my interest in things astronomical and am taking advantage of an early retirement to 'spend more time with my telescope'. I rapidly caught the imaging bug, but have become progressively more interested in spectroscopy. I am currently using a Celestron C11 for the spectroscopy but continue to do some imaging with various kit including a variety of 'scopes and telephoto lenses.
