My fascination with astronomy started on my many campouts with my Dad and a simple pair of binoculars. Then in 1985 I bought my first telescope, an 8 inch Celestron for viewing Haley’s Comet. I now have a 14 inch Celestron and love it. For the past 5 years I have been attending the Grand Canyon Annual Star Party (this is their 30th year hosting). The 14 inch Celestron is a hit with the park guests. My latest acquisition is an 11 inch Celestron which I plan to use to return to astrophotography which I have not done since film cameras went out of style.
