  1. Hi Eteny

    We are also amateur astronomy observers and thruly enthusiastic and lovers of astrophotography and amateur telescope making as you are. We live in Guadalajara, Mexico and we are committed on the sharing of knowledge of this science. Is it possible to get direct access to your blog? How can we subscribe to it so we can have your photos and news first hand to share them with our colegues? Can we have some sort of communication between you and our society? You can visit our page at and in facebook “Sociedad Astronomica de Guadalajara”

    Thanks for your answer!!
