I have been interested in astronomy since I was a very young child, but I got into observational astronomy in earnest in 1980, when I was elected president of my high school's astronomy club.
Presently I own a 10-inch Newtonian reflector.
I like to observe planets, multiple stars, star clusters, nebulae, and galaxies. However, I most enjoy intragalactic deep-sky objects.
I was an astronomy teaching and laboratory assistant in college.
I have seen and identified all 88 constellations in the sky.
I have seen 3 total, 2 annular, and 2 partial solar eclipses, as well as 4 total, 2 partial, and numerous penumbral lunar eclipses. In addition, I have been clouded out of 2 total and 1 partial lunar eclipses and 1 partial solar eclipse. Check out the picture of my view from 7 kilometers west of Sevaruyo, Bolivia on November 3, 1994.
