This is truly a great site. Thank you for the information about astrophotography as well as the personal information about yourself. As you can see, I am also from Arkansas and also of very "conservative mind". I have been fascinated with astronomy since I was a child. And now, at age 30, I am more interested than ever. Spending time under the stars makes us realize just how humble we should be. It is truly amazing what God has created for us to enjoy. I still have my first 60 mm refractor that my parents bought for me when I was young, but I am planning to purchase an LX 200 soon. But thank you once again for the wonderful site and info, as well as the opportunity to get to know you. His Universe would be an even greater place if there were more people li e you within it.

I imagine it will be many years before I will be able to produce photos like yours. I am just browsing the Net, trying to learn some before my scope arrives. I bookmarked your page, will be back. I am planning on adding my telescope ventures to my homepage as I photograph them. Rick

The rolloff observatory is exactly what I will be building for the "ASTROCAMPS" if I can ever get my idea off the ground. My first step though is to acquire some land! That takes money so since I am a truck driver by trade, and an Amateur Astronomer by ni ht then I'm off to make some money! Do you know anything about how to start a non-profit org? I hear that they can get land donated, among other things. I want ASTROCAMPS to be non-profit for kids and families.

I thought your page was very interesting.I am new to astronomy. I purchased a new 8" Meade SCT 203SC500 on a German equatorial mount. It seems very sturdy. I am wanting to get into astrophotography. It does however seem very complicated. I need to get a d al axis drive for my telescope mounting. It did not come with one, but Meade does offer one.Feel free to e-mail me with any advice. It would be appreciated.

I was "into" astromony years ago (mid to late 70's)and still get the bug every now and again. I plan to get involved again but may need to get my mirror re-coated. Plan on pulling it out and giving it a good cleaning over the weekend, and go fro there. Al

in "Prime Focus Photography and the Horror of Focusing" You talk about finding the object and then going to a star and focusing and going back to take shot. Since the focus doesn't change when you move scope why couldn't you focus before getting the object? Focus early and often... i donno just a thought

I fell into a trance when I took a "Department Store" 3.5 Newt into the drive way and looked up at the full moon. I could not take my eyes off of it. Then I swung over to Jupiter. I could see the bands !!! I was almost beside myself. The topper was when I lined up on Saturn. I literaly jumped up in the air! I knew right away that I needed a higher quality scope so I ordered an 8" Newt with EQ mount. Your web site has cleared up many things for me. I feel that I have a much better grasp of Polar Alignment. our explanation of the process of taking astrophotos has opened my eyes to the fact that it will take work but your pictures are an inspiration. I only hope that I can get close !! Thanks for a wonderful site. James

Hello. Very interesting stuff, I tried my luck at a startrails picture and it turned out very well. you can look at it at: http://www.winford.barlow.net/startrails99.jpg Please let me know what you think. A quarter moon was out so with a 15 min. exposure it made the mountians look like mid-day but the startrails are very visable.

Perhaps the most striking feature, is the photos along with words from Psalm 8. I have loved the stars - and the study of such - for years. Just bought my first telescope last year (8 inch NR, Eq mount, RA motor drive - Meade Starfinder!) Wanting to do so e moon and planetary photography. I thought I was the only astronomer out there who has an appreciation for science, and a love for God. Your site is encouraging and refreshing. Thank you.

A very professionl display of your photography skills. I viewed these without knowing what telescope took the pictures and assumed that they were taken by the Hubble Telescope.

You have a wonderful website concerning astronomy. I find astronomy to be fascinating. I have never had the money to invest in a telescope in the past, but I now have a 4.5" Meade reflector. I am going to be investing in Celestron's Nexstar 5 telescope which is hot on the market right now. I am in the process of studying about astrophotography and getting myself prepared with the knowledge of the good and bad to it. I have been blessed with patience, so I believe I will do great in it. I want to than you for your input on the internet of your knowledge and of your work. God bless you!

Nice concise pages on astrophotography with just one minor error :) Prime Focus is actually the point of Focus of the Primary Optical Component in the OTA (ie the main mirror or lens) hence Prime focus for an SCT is the location of the secondary and is properly called the Cassegrainian Focus (or Newtonian Focus if it's a ewtonian Reflector etc.) Okay so I'm being picky but accuracy is something that is forsaken by many amateurs and magazines like S&T, Astronomy and so on are too lazy to educate amateurs in the proper terminology.

I am enjoying your very informative website. I actually have to dust off my telescope and do a standard night of observing before I embark on astrophotography. It's been awhile since I used my Schmidt-Cassegrain 2080B telescope. I'll probably get start d with astrophotography when the smoke clears after every astromomers worst night, July 4th! I have a nephew who is interested in astronomy and now astrophotography, too, and has a science summer project involving the two. I'm the amateur astronomer of he family and my husband likes photography. We'll see what we can do. I'm a little nervous about this. I hope you won't mind a few e-mails from me this month. Thanks.
