Hi everyone!

How you all doing, I've not been as active on here lately unlike the past, I guess I've just been busy with other stuff!

Some of you know, but most of you probably don't, but I started a new hobby back at the end of February, the money pit called astrophotography! It's been a really steep learning curve, but I'm starting to see better results and really enjoying the tinkering. Even when I just throw an eyepiece onto my scope and just scan around, it scale of space just amazes me. Now that I'm getting slowly better at capturing galaxies and the planets (still a lot to learn and lots of room for improvement), I just want to see more and more.

The post processing is a nightmare, still no idea what I'm doing, but hey ho, I guess that will come with time.

Anyway, I recently started a new YouTube channel to document and share my equipment and some of my imaging. The last images on there are Saturn, Jupiter, The Bubble Nebula and Triangulum Galaxy.
