Biography

I have an MS in Physics, with concentrations in mathematical physics and optics. (For the rest of my classes I didn't concentrate all that much; I only managed loose, random thoughts...)
I've worked as an optics engineer for most of my career, mainly involved with UV-VIS-IR radiation photometry, and designing equipment that worked over these wavelength ranges. I've worked at 6 different companies, but spent 10+ years each at 2 large aerospace firms, working as a systems engineer for both companies.
My primary hobby is astronomy. I have a backyard observatory I built myself. The equipment I use in it is about a 50:50 mix of things I've bought commercially and things I've built myself.
