Diary of a nature photographer
Study, monitoring, research and photography about the Nature

Since I was a child, I've always been really fond of astronomy. I still remember my first telescope, a small refractor with a tiny tripod, but that it had given me a lot of satisfaction. During the time I've always spent some time to observe the sky and the stars, looking for some galaxy, like M31, the Andromeda Galaxy, or M42, the Orion Nebula, but I've never taken any pictures because I didn't have a camera.  Then my telescope (the second one was a classical Newton 114/1000) wasn't so good, both as optical quality as mechanical. But some years ago my wife gave me a new telescope, a Meade LXD75 with an 8" Schmidt-Newton and a computer for the mount. And everything changes because I can see more celestial objects and in an easier way using the computer. But when I try to take some pictures, so it borns the problems. The mount wasn't so good as I thought and without other accessories, like a guide-scope or a guide-camera, it was really hard to take a decent picture, so I had to give up.

This year instead there's something different, but I don't still want to tell anything, so you'd had to wait for a while, but stay tuned with me, there will be some good news.
