Welcome to this blog!

Hello and welcome to my Amateur Astronomy blog! I have been interested in astronomy and space exploration for most of my life but never had any practical experience. I recently decided that the time has come to pursue this hobby more seriously. I got myself a telescope, a camera, and joined a local astronomy club. At the same time I started this blog to document my learning experience and share it with other amateur astronomers around the world.

I have been a lucky telescope owner for about six months now. Also, I have recently gotten interested in astrophotography. As part of my learning experience I have done a lot of research about the sky and astronomy in general, equipment, astrophotography, various processes, etc. During this time I found that the exiting part of becoming an amateur astronomer is sharing your findings with others, getting help and tips from more mature and experienced astronomers, and helping other beginners who may be struggling with similar issues and questions that I had to go through.

I will start by documenting and publishing my previous experience for the past six months. I hope that other amateur astronomers who are sharing same interests will find my observations and results interesting as well as useful. I will try to outline many issues and questions that I have been facing along with the solutions that I found. I hope that you enjoy this blog and I am looking forward to your feedback!

My equipment:
- Celestron NexStar 8SE (8" SCT)
- Canon EOS 400D (Digital Rebel XTi)
