I‚??ve been an avid backyard astronomer since the 4th grade and have most of my life, owned some sort of telescope. In late 2010, I purchased my first imager, the Orion Planetary imager & Autoguider and now, provided I have the next morning free and a clear sky that night, you‚??ll find me somewhere, most often at Fremont Peak, with scope and camera going.
