|Walter's CSC4800 Web Page - Astronomy|
I have a number of hobbies, of which I will discuss astronomy on this page.
I got into astronomy after getting a 5" Newtonian Reflector Telescope. One gaze through it at the stars and planets and I was hooked.
Unfortunately the weather in Seattle during the Winter months, school, and light pollution from the Tide Flats of Tacoma to the SW, and all the houses between me and Seattle make good viewing problematic.
I've tried my hand at astrophotography, but without good equipment to put the telescope on and a telescope capable of astrophotography I have not done well.
I spent a weekend in New Mexico Skies, outside Alamogordo. They have some wonderful equipement and I was able to take some nice pictures.
