About Me

I am 58 years old, I have been interested in astronomy since high school, never dedicate any of my time to it or any other hobby, but 2018 I had neck surgery for a pinched nerve. As that healed, I developed tremors in my left hand. Another trip to the neurologist and a DAT scan yielded a diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease (PD) in early 2018. I was 52 years old. I continued to work, and I am lucky to have incredibly supportive wife, kids, and friends. My progression with Parkinson’s has been really fast — the shaking had moved to my left leg, arms and face, and I had noticed a lot of stiffness, slowness and speach issues. My approach is and was not to view Parkinson’s as an affliction but as just part of who I am now. As things become more difficult, I don’t view PD as limiting what I can do, but rather as challenging me to figure out different ways of achieving what I want.

My Parkinson’s journey continues. Lats year 2022 I was on so much medication, and the side effects were terrible, anyway my Neurologist mention the surgery (not a cure), but a nice Band-Aid for the symptoms, so I figure what do I have to loose, if the surgery doesn't work at least I will have a nice scars to talk about it, the surgery was a success, and I got my life back, not wasting any minute, spending more time with those I hold dear, trying and discovering what I missed all those years.


I decide to joined the twilight zone and jumped across into the the sleepless universe, so last August 22nd with a complete no knowledge on how things work regarding astrophotography. Purchased all the right stuff I think, and now I am just trying to make them work properly. I hoped that astrophotography should be a lot easier than what it is, but I am having lot's of fun.
