Hello from Sydney

Recommended Posts

Shouts to Carole for tipping me the wink that there was a new forum and I can’t believe I was able to have David as my user name! 


I have spent a really enjoyable 10 years learning as much as possible not just about astrophotography but also about what I am imaging and it never gets old. Having built an observatory in Sydney I now have another one I am working on in the Barrington Tops which has fantastic dark skies (25 minutes away from the nearest streetlight at 90 kms per hour) and where I spent most of last year hiding out.


Right now I am looking for ways to give back and share either through science based imaging projects or just contributing back to the forums that have taught me so much over the years.


I love reading and right now on my kindle I am on  “The Last Stargazers” by Emily Levesque which is a fascinating account of an astronomer working at some of the huge telescopes in Hawaii, Chile and the US. 


Looking forward to contributing on this forum.


David (AussieDave as was)

Glad you made it Dave, lots of Shed people on here now so you are among friends both old and new. 


Do you still use the SHOB?



I am indeed. Was imaging NGC6164/5 last night in Oii and will do some more tonight. Great spot for NB but also good for globular and open clusters.
