Hello Hello

Hi Everyone,
Just joined the website and thought that it would be a good idea to say hi even though me and Dad have been up to the NLO for a while now! My name is Will and I'm a student doing A-Levels at the moment and I want to study Astrophysics at Uni. My Dad is Pete. We've recently bought a Celestron C8 and got it on a HEQ5 Pro Mount. We have been Imaging with a Canon EOS 20D, but I want an Atik CCD! We are in the process of getting hold of a Williams Optics 66 which should be good as you rate them quite highly. Hopefully I will be posting my first picture soon once I have fully understood the stacking software and Photoshop. I do have some single Images that I have edited in Aperture which may be familiar with other Mac users, but isn't brilliant for serious editing. Anyway enough of me going on. Hi everyone!! :)
