About midlandpilot@yahoo.com

I have been interested in the night sky since I was a kid living in rural Kansas. I remember looking up into the night sky and seeing the Milky Way from my back yard and searching for different constellations and stars and educating myself on the names and positions of the objects in the night sky. Since 2006, I have been doing astrophotography getting good images with a One Shot Color (OSC) camera. Just recently purchased my first Monochrome camera (QSI 683) and have been trying to learn it.
