Welcome to Biswajit 's Online Astronomy Journal.|
For a long time I have been searching a site like this one which can give me an opportunity to place my astronomy observation reports, photos, and findings, share knowledge with others. Finally I have got it. All visitors are welcome to go through the pages of my journal and put their constructive comments if necessary so that it would modify and enrich myself.
I would like to thank Mr. Neil Heacock for opening this site.
I am a school teacher in Geography.
I have been watching sky for last 14 years. However, I had a 60 mm refractor and a 10x50 binocular, both of which accompanied my eyes and helped me to begin sky observation. At present I have purchased a 150 mm refractor with equatorial mount. On my proposal an astronomy club SNAP (STUDY OF NATURE AND ASTRONOMY FOR PEOPLE) was established on 22 July, 2009 at my town.
I am living with my wife and a daughter of class IV.
