Look up, way up
To confine our attention to terrestrial matters would be to limit the human spirit.

For the longest time (it seems like since the dawn of the universe, no pun intended), I have been highly interested in Astronomy. I remember being six years old and having my father read me the “Our Universe” book from National Geographic as a bedtime story and being completely engaged in the subject.
For me, the cosmos is a metaphor for a vast expanse of possibilities; it is a place where one can look up, wonder and dream.
Over the past 30 years, other interests, responsibilities, and daily events in life have kept me occupied from pursuing Astronomy & Astrophotography with zeal and passion.
With the recent events of the past two years (the pandemic) and being older, I have had time to re-ignite my interest in this hobby.
With many of my other goals, hobbies, passions having been fulfilled; now seems to be an appropriate time to get back on the path of this journey.
The dedicated Astronomy section on the website is part of that journey. In this area, I can document my attempts at Astrophotography and post-write-ups about my experiences with gear or events.
The Astronomy section is one of the newest sections of this site, and I have grand goals for it, albeit it will take time (with a dash of luck, over the December 2021- Feb 2022 timeframe.
