Moderately experienced amateur, without ever having used a tracking 'scope. I wore out my first (cheap) refractor at age 14. I now have an 8" Dobsonian, and a 40mm Coronado PST (Solar telescope). I've dabbled with astrophotography since 2000, have gotten more serious about it since the fall of 2011.
Meteorites, Asteroids, Comets, NEOs, Impacts, the Sun, Outreach and Education.
WAS board member, volunteer NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassador. Amateur astronomer & solar observing enthusiast, meteorite collector. Near-Earth Objects are a "Big Thing" with me. Science Fiction fan. IT-Guy, Wordpress website developer, programmer.
I am SO happy to have found this astronomy club!
