I got into astronomy in an odd way back in the early 70's. I was a Minuteman II Missile technician during the cold war era. We used Polaris and 2 optically flat 8" mirrors and a theodolite to help establish the missiles position on Earth. I began carrying a small 60mm (an old Jason refractor) telescope with me out to the very dark sites the missiles were on. The views were amazing. I have been hooked ever since. I now have many instruments ranging from 60mm up to 508mm and enjoy them all. In the last 5 years astro-phography has become a passion of mine.
