Welcome to my Astronomy website. You can click the links at the top of this page to see the equipment I use along with the images I’ve taken.
I currently live in Concord Township,Ohio which is approximately 30 miles east of Cleveland Ohio. I am a member of the Chagrin Valley Astronomy Club. I first got interested in astronomy back in college where I was studying Aeronautical Engineering. That was back in the 70s and I purchased a 6 inch Meade Newtonian telescope. I did some photographic film work with the telescope but really got involved photography when the digital revolution hit in the 90s. In the late 90s I purchased a Meade 12 inch LX 200 telescope along with the Meade Pictor 416xte CCD camera and the Meade Pictor 216xt auto guider. With that setup, images I had taken were published in the Meade catalog along with Astronomy Magazine. I’ve upgraded over the years a few times. I purchased a Meade 14 inch LX 200 telescope to replace the 12 inch. I then purchased a Meade 16 inch LX 850 which I currently have. I image with a CCD camera from SBIG. It is the SBIG STT-8300M along with the FW8G-STT auto guiding filter wheel .
I also enjoy playing the guitar and I have a link above to my YouTube site. I hope you enjoy the website if you have any questions please feel free to email me Welcome to my website. You can click the links at the top of this page to see the equipment I use along with the images I’ve taken.
