I began "serious" observing in 1982 from my Boulder, Colorado backyard with an 8-inch Meade f/6 Newtonian. After a long break for bicycle racing, Ridhwan School work, and graduate school at CU-Boulder, I joined the Denver Astronomical Society in 2002 and resumed observing with a Celestron 9.25 SCT and then an 11-inch SCT on a Celestron CGE. I completed the basic AL Master Observer program in 2006 and (choosing photography over a larger telescope) began imaging in 2008 with an SBIG ST8 and then the Honis-modified Canon 450D DSLR that is still my primary camera. I'm the owner and clinician, Greenwood Speech Language Center, Centennial, Colorado. Volunteer activities for the DAS include Webmaster; ALCor; Acting Chair, Dark Site Committee; and public night scope operator of the 20" Clark-Saegmuller refractor at DU's Historic Chamberlin Observatory.
