Astronomy by Rusty Fletcher
The heavens declare the glory of God ..... Psalm 19 verse 1.
In the past 7 years I have set up my telescope (about) 3 times to do visual observing. I am now getting back into astronomical imaging. The images here were done many years ago using old equipment that is now mostly outdated. I will soon be adding new images using a new camera. I am currently working on my telescope and doing some upgrades. If everything goes well, and central Texas has some good weather, I look forward to posting new images soon!

The next two pages give a brief history of CCD imaging with various telescopes and camera's I've used.
They show older images that were done when I was first learning to do CCD imaging.
