About German Obando

Greetings I have been an amateur astronomer since I was 7 years old when my dad gave me some 7x50 binoculars with which I learned to observe the sky, since then I have explored the Universe through renowned scientific magazines like the Sky and telescope that have opened up my knowledge and Now with my 8 "Meade SCT telescope I do planetary astrophotography that I want to share. I belong to ACODEA, Costa Rican Astronomy Association and in the past I collaborated with this prestigious magazine translating texts into Spanish.
