    Hi Everyone,

    My name is Baz and I am an avid astrophotographer. Looking to talk to others and exchange tips and tricks.

    I built my own four metre tall geodesic domed observatory in my front yard at home, using recycled building and transport materials.

    I have a permanently mounted couple of telescopes on a computerised and motorised mount for aquisition and guiding on stars as I take long exposures of deep-space objects.

    I am using a Canon EOS 400D unmodified, as well as a dedicated CCD astrocamera.

    I don't think I am allowed to post pictures here but I would like to, just to share advice, experience and tips and tricks.

    I look forward to saying hi!

    Baz.

    Hey, it sounds like you'd fit in here, you've obviously got a passion for photography so why not post up some pictures?

    I know there was at least one other member (can't remember his name) that was into astrophotography, hopefully he'll see this thread.

    After you have 100 posts, you'll be able to post pics and links. (it's a rule installed to discourage spammers.) Welcome to OTAP. We're a rowdy bunch of pricks that don't usually hold back.

    Paging Ewhytsell.

    Looks like I can't PM either. That's a shame. I can't offer example and advice if people can't see the photo's.

    My observatory is called ASIGN Observatory.

    I have dedicated it to God, who helped me build it and still is, but I have tried to keep the practical side of things seperate from the religious side, so people have a choice to pick as they please.

    I am as practical as they come and try to lend a "Real" disposition to the things of life.

    Thanks very much for the warm welcome, from reading around I can already tell there are some real characters and entertaining people here.

    Baz.
