My Childhood

My Childhood

My passion for space started when I was a young boy around the age of 12. I still remember getting my first 50mm Tasco telescope as a Christmas gift. This telescope became my wormhole, tunnel, door or my holodeck to another world. It opened up nature and the cosmos to me and I became fascinated with everything astronomical, meteorlogical and photographic and, therefore, now I am an astrophotographer. I have always been a big star trek and star wars fan and I am a supporter of space travel. My main astronomical interests, both in observing and astroimaging, is with the moon and planets. My favorite planets have always been Mars and Saturn.
