Re: What are your other passions?

My wife, Family, Grandkids


Classical guitar, Ballroom Dancing, Astrophotography,

this was taken from our front yard in NC:



And this was taken from our backyard in NC:



golf, scuba, travel, home projects (patio and walkway to dock)



laser physics (I retired from Bell Labs), but I am still active with a non-profit technical society in optics and photonics.

SPIE Photonics West | The world's leading biomedical optics, MEMs, photonics, and industrial laser conference and exhibition

theories of everything and of course; quantum optics.

And grilling!

who has time to retire!

Hey, I'm going to Photonics West in a couple of weeks! Are you involved with the conference?

Did you seriously take that picture of the galaxy? That is a really great shot. Is it Andromeda?

Re: What are your other passions?

Yes, I will be at PW. I am involved with organizing the conferences. I captured that image with a AT65EQD and an SBIG camera, it is Andromeda (M31) along with M32 and M110. It is great to have dark skies here in NC.

thanks,

Re: What are your other passions?

Guess I'll represent the nerd herd.

Kayaking and biking(to try to keep physical fit).
Software engineering as a hobby(keeps me mentally sharp and always learning, I'm a systems engineer by trade).
Pen and paper roleplaying games(basically games like Dungeons and Dragons. This keeps me socially active).
The odd computer game now and then, though I do this a lot less than I did 10 years ago.

And in my down time at home reading books(fantasy and sci-fi), watching movies/tv shows and oddly enough working on boat projects.

"Hose" envy? Are you sure that's what you meant to say?
