My passion with astronomy and space exploration

I got my first telescope when I was a boy in the 1960s. Astronomy and space exploration have been on my radar for quite a long time but now that my kids are on their own and after a 30 year career in law enforcement, retired, I can now delve back into it.

In 2001, I purchased a Meade LX-200 12" and it is setup in my backyard in a pod. I have just started astrophotography with a CCD as well as with a DSLR to image the Milky Way. In the winter, KSC is a destination of mine and have already assisted at several rocket launches. Now, I want to increase my education and looking to take online astronomy courses. I've started Dr Betts' online course but will be looking for more in the near future.
