Hello there everybody ('heavenly' or otherwise)... time methinks for an introduction...

My name is Eugen and I'm 37, married with 2 little-uns (5 and 2yrs) and made the move from Weymouth to south Wales 6 yrs ago (Pontnewynydd but now we live in Light Polluted Newport grrrr). I've been working as an optical glazing lab tech in a local independent Opticians making up peoples spectacles and I got into astronomy way back when I got my first scope at aged 7... I still remember the evening staring at Venus with my late-Grandfather.

I've had a Bresser 114mm Newt for 25yrs now and back in 2003 I upgraded to the Skywatcher 254mm Newt to open up the possibility of getting some half-decent astrophotos. After upgrading the mounts electronics / gears to the Synscan system things have been good and as of the last 3 years I've been climbing the learning curve with everyone else (misery loves company Tee hee).

I've recently added the Equinox ED80 to replace my Bresser 70mm guidescope on the 254mm Newt and after some valuable nights out over the new year season I've managed to iron out some major issues so now I can image at that intermediate FOV that I haven't been able to explore before.

So, a big hello to you all again...
