another hobby....kind of image related
« on: March 19, 2017, 12:11:37 PM »

Hi again:

Astrophotography is another hobby that takes up my time.  I have a Celestron 9.25 sct telescope, odds and ends and a couple of astronomy cameras...some of the drill core spheres I am making look a bit 'planetary'
Newbie here...but I will try to post one of my Jupiter images

Cheers

I may have to get my Husband to sign up here so he can chat with you regarding this.  Hubby is an amateur Astronomer as a hobby, and he wants to eventually set up a telescope to look at stars and then hook a computer and camera to it for photography.

Hi Amanda...yes, it is a great hobby also...Stargazers Lounge in the U.K is a great helpful site I use all the time...the members offer all kinds of advice for setting up, imaging etc.  Stellarium is also awesome free software for finding out what's up there, when etc.

Good luck

Hi again....also besides making spheres and astrophotography I have a few other hobbies.  I'm a retired commercial artist and also sandblasted etch glassware...mugs, marble and granite tiles etc. still do some painting and also do reverse glass gilding with 23K gold leaf (have attached a sample)

Thanks for looking
