Hello from Newark On Trent

Recommended Posts

60 year old long term practical  observer since my early teens.

Originally from yorkshire, started with the usual 60mm japanese refractor in the late 70’s.

Originally trained as a mechanical engineer. 

Now use a 11”SCT  for visual, and solar system imaging, and an RC8 for deep-sky imaging.

I retired a couple of years ago to look after my ill wife, so plenty of observing time on my hands now.

Ill wives do not always give you lots of extra time.  They do make us better time managers. Astronomy is great. You can be interrupted any time and the night is usually like free time. 

Didn't know you had 3 wives Richard!!
