    Hi All,

    I just joined the forum and most of my inquires will relate to astrophysics. I am a retired professor of neurology and have turned my interests towards astrophotography and teaching astronomy at a local university. I have built my own observatory and my work can be seen at www.RoscoeSkies.com. I specialize in nebulae. I have attached one of my more recent images.

    Wow! Welcome to the PF, Dennis. That attached image is stunning! I'm at work ATM, and my work firewall will not let me access your website. I'll check it out from home later. :-)

    Hi Dennis
    welcome and great to have another astrophotographers aboard :)

    awesome pic of the nebula and shows the pillars well !!

    as a suggestion, put some other info on that page with the pic
    Am sure I'm not the only one who wants to know what gear you used, exposure times, how many stacked exposures etc :)

    (edit ... OK see some of that info on your main page .... nice scope setup ! )

    Hi Dennis,

    Just wanted to let you know that your site is down

    Hello! I'm not sure if it was down yesterday, but for me, roscoeskies.com is fully functioning. Those pictures are excellent, I must say.

    Best wishes.

    Let's hope that will be not your only post, now and then we have questions (in other sciences, or medicine) were your original expertise could come handy.
