I have been an amateur astronomer for most of my adult life, but fell away from the hobby in a serious manner through my career taking precedence.

I did try some astrophotography back around 2011 or 2012 and used my Nikon D80 to capture some decent beginner photos with the camera piggybacked to my Celestron 130SLT. I never recorded the exposures, but got some decent stuff considering the lack of filters and the light pollution in my area.

This said, now that I have retired, I am back to the hobby and am resurrecting my gear. I plan to get into astrophotography and also back to serious observational astronomy soon. More as these developments occur.
