Astrophotography Home


I arrived home this morning and was surprised to find two big boxes (One was big, the other was HUGE!) on the patio in our backyard. My big Dobsonian Telescope had arrived.

I carefully opened the boxes and located the instructions. I had been looking forward to this day for a long time.

First Light was the top of a neighbors tree so I could align the finder scope. First Light tonight will be the moon, Pleiades, or maybe even Toutatis, a 4.5km by 2.4km asteroid that will pass earth later this month by four times the Moon's distance.
