Jose Carvajal Avila Spain
Jose Fernando Alves Goncalves Sintra Portugal I am 43 years of age, and been an observer since the age of 20. I have other astronomical interests (eclipses, meteors, planets, deep-sky, etc.) but my principal passion have always been comet observing. So far (2012) I have seen 40 comets (the first was C/1987 P1 Bradfield). I use mostly binoculars ( from 8X30 to 20X80 ) and sometimes a 114mm reflector. comets-ml
