The Great Falls Observatory Park seems to be the best site in the DC area. Big Meadows (Shenandoah) is quite nice but Spruce Knob is better.
I have a Celestron CGE (Computerized German Equatorial) - 9.25". The CGE, with the equatorial mount, is pretty good for taking photos. I'm usually looking for more accessories.
I bought the Orion Deep Space Color Imager II but I find it awkward to use. I also have a DSLR - Canon XSi (12MP) & T-ring adapter. It seems to be much easier to work with.
I use "TheSky" (Software Bisque) - the telescope control seems to work with a variety of scopes.
Hobbies are more fun when shared. Much can be learned talking with people of similar interests.
Finally joined you here!
Gerry, It was great to meet you in person last night to share some apres ski beer. If you have any details on a yurt rental and would like to invite others, please feel free to contact me to plan something soon.
Gerry, Congratulations on becoming a 2012 Winter Activities program member with Funabalu-Singles. I look forward to meeting you at our activities.
Thanks for the pictures from Canada Day, EH!
it was very nice to meet you in this backpacking trip. Thank you for organizing this one and I hope you and Thad can organize some more in the future. I will surely join if I have time. Take care!
