About Mike Nicholson

I live in a small coastal town on the bottom west coast of NZ's North Island. The skies here are quite dark but weather is a bit of an issue. We live near to a beach and are subjected to south westerly winds, sometimes gale force. I have a 300mm f/5 Newtonian on a dob mount and my wife and I will be using it for public viewing in conjunction with our local astronomical society. The long term aim is to mount the Newt on a EQ platform or perhaps an EQ mount. I love viewing the Southern Skies.
