I joined this forum back in May and I am also a member of other astro related forums.
I'm an 'old school' film astrophotographer started in the late 70's and was a subscriber to 'Deep Sky' magazine back in the 80's, I just moved over to DSLR's in 2012 and now this Spring I have gone CCD.
My interest mainly is imaging planetary nebulae and other small and challenging deep sky objects in very challenging weather conditions here in Scotland.
Afraid I've never really been a visual observer but have much respect to those that are, I just like to combine my photography interest with astronomy. I find the knowledge of users on this forum of rare & obscure DSO's very interesting and although I do tend to lurk a fair bit I hope to contribute to the forum over the coming months.
I run a portable setup operating between my garden and visiting dark sky sites in my van where each session is a fresh setup from scratch.
