Hello everyone, from cloudy Cornwall

Hi Everyone,
I live in Cornwall, work in Exeter a couple of days per week and visit NLO when I can & joined up at SW Astro fair last year.
Mainly a visual observer, but recently got into imaging with a minitron video camera.

Nice videos of the moon and planets, and has an integration function that stacks up to 256 frames
to give higher sensitivity. Can get decent images of deep sky obkjects , but just in the early steep bit of the learning curve.



Clear skies everyone

Equipment
Orion 12" dobsonian intelliscope
GSO 10" newtonian on home built Dobsobian mount
Both on Equatorial Platforms that I built myself
Loads of eyepieces
Bino viewer
Minitron video camera
Canon DSLR
Huge binoculars, etc

Hi David. Saw your pic of the Dob and thought I recognised the background. Then read your resume. I have friends in St Agnes in Wheal Friendly Lane. Anyway welcome to the NLO and AISW.
