Hello everyone

Post by george7378 »

Hi, I am new here. I am George, I am 17, and I have been observing for about a year and a half. I have a 10" Dobsonian, and as well as observing things like planets, the Moon, galaxies, nebulae, and, recently, a supernova, I have done a bit of basic astro-photography. I have a website (http://gkastro.tk/) but it was recently featured on the homepage of slashdot.com, so the images are disabled until next month! My photos can be found here though:

I look forward to sharing observations with you.

George.

Brilliant stuff :)

Thanks :) Every so often, ESA and NASA put videos on their Youtube channels where astronauts invite the public to submit questions - there is one right now where you can ask Paolo Nespoli a question (one of my answers is from him) by posting a video response to this video of you asking your question:

It can take a while to get a response, but one should come eventually.
