He got his first telescope last February, a 5” Newtonian which I only had for 6 weeks before upgrading to a 10” and now uses a 12” Dobsonian to visually observe deep sky objects as well as several smaller telescopes for astrophotography.

His main interest is space flight & astrophotography, particularly globular clusters.
