My Father bought me a small reflector scope for Christmas when I was 10. When I retired, three years ago, I found a used XT10 Skyquest and spent my first year getting re-acquainted with the night sky. I gradually got moved to the "dark side" of imaging (as we call it) after going to Comanche Springs Astronomy Campus, two years ago. I started purchasing equipment and software and got some good tips from the other Volunteers (which I am now one) at CSAC.
