Welcome to Glen's Online Astronomy Journal.
I'm not too smart about all of this, but if you get in here -- Welcome.
I'm retired and enjoy the night air and stars.
Astrophotography - In the past I enjoyed photography with 35 mm film.
Since I moved to a Canon digital SLR and a Phillips ToUcam, it's opened a new field of intersting
challenges. I guide now with an Orion Starshoot autoguider and a tracking CG-5 mount.
This alone eases the pain of operation, but adds complexity to the hobby.
In the past, we didn't have to have cables, batteries, chargers, laptops perfect polar alignment,
and a half dozen software programs. The biggest thing was keeping awake, warm and dew heaters turned on.
I too, enjoy building and modifying equipment.

I do most of my observing from my home built observatory, but I live near the Lewis River and so I have to deal with river fog and city light glow. :(
I some times go up the hill behind my place to an elevation of about 2000 ft.
It's a short drive of only 10 minutes but requires set up and tear down time.
