Good Evening everyone at Astro Imaging Southwest

By way of introduction I am Craig and I live in the Cullompton area. I suppose I have been very much interested in the night sky for the majority of my 43 Yrs and having recently retired from a full career in the British Army I am turning my spare time towards imaging the night sky.

I am very much interested in Deep Sky Objects for which I have recently acquired an NEQ6 mount and a William Optics Z73 to compliment my SkyWatcher ED80 and Mak150, that I have been running on top of a EQ5. Whilst currently imaging with a Canon 600D DSLR I do have designs on moving towards a mono cooled CCD or the emerging CMOS equivalent.

So that's a bit about me, I intend to get down to NLO at some point in the near future for one of the Friday night meets and join NLO but until then I wish you all the very best and look forward to meeting as many of you guys and girls as possible both in person and/or through this forum.

My warmest regards to all.

Craig

Craig,
Good to meet you , I joined only a couple of months ago and have had nothing but encouragement and friendship from this group and as a member of the NLO, the Friday night meets are great (even when its a bad sky night), would be good to meet up at NLO but you would have to talk to a serving matelot!
