What are your other hobbies?

Postby darwin » Wed Oct 28, 2009 1:19 pm

I imagine that most people here have other hobbies and wonder what they might be.

Mine are astrophotography, especially photographing the International
space Station.

I also recently found a welder at a rummage sale. This sparked my longtime desire to build a recumbent bicycle. It's all done now, I'm waiting for the paint to dry so I can try it out. I've major changes to the frame twice to get it right.

Darwin, you have some great stuff on that site. I used to use a cheapo scope when I lived on a ranch. We would go out 15 miles from the nearest building & see some great stuff with no lights around. Now....nothing doing. That observatory you built is nice, a lot of thought & man hours in that building. Congratulations,ebl

Riding motorcycle (to the tune of 20,000 miles per year), sports cars and firearms are my primary hobbies. I also have Z-scale trains and a love for travel and reading.

That oversight will cost you a Lucas Prince of Darkness experience the next time you drive :wink:

Damn Darwin! WOW your doing stuff I only dreamed off. I did 25 years of ATM stuff, grinding mirrors, building dobs and stepper motor controller to control a dob designed for photo work. I never did really get into astro photography other than a barn door hinge with an SLR mounted.

I just sold/gave away the last of my astro toys including a set of Clave eyepieces.
