Hello from New Hampshire, USA. I'm a stargeezer 72 years old, having been an on-and-off amateur since 1965. I began with an Edmund Scientific 4-1/4" Palomar Jr. Newtonian reflector, moved on to building a custom 10" reflector with parts from a variety of manufacturers plus a handmade wooden tube, and now I mostly use an Explore Scientific 127mm refractor mounted on a CGEM and a permanent pier and all controlled remotely. I consider myself to be a beginner at astrophotography, and so I hope to learn from this forum's members who've had a lot more experience. Clear skies, and keep looking up! :11:
