hey guys,

just thought i would say hello and introduce myself,

my names danny, i am 22 and live in blackburn, lancashire. i have always been into severe weather but recently i stumbled upon martin mckennas website and sine then i have gotten into astronomy. (thanks martin).

i currently own a digital camera which i try and photo severe storms with and have recently had a go at some lunar photography aswell. i am hoping to get a 6'' newtonian refelector pretty soon and i have also got some plans to build a 8'' dobsonian scope, if i do well with these i might try a bigger 16'' scope.

i think thats enough from me for now

thanks guys

p.s could someone tell me how i post images please thanks

Welcome Danny!, delighted you joined the forum, I hope you enjoy yourself here and learn new things, we cover a wide range of topics so hopefully something will interest you. I will get back to your email later, I'm overwelmed with image taking today so will get around to it as soon as I can.

To post images use an image host such as photobucket or tinypic.com and simply copy and paste the URL or IMG link into the post in the forum and that should work. We usually post images no larger than 800 pixels wide. I hope this helps. Best of luck with the new camera and scopes.  Smiley
