Background/Interesting Fact
My current project is to study the characteristics of the central stars of Planetary nebula, observe under observed binary stars and study microvariations in stars.
My current scope is an AR102 refractor with an ATIK 414 mono camera on an Orion Sirius mount called Temple 10. There is also a C11 with an SBIG ST-8E, CFW-8 filter wheel and sloan filters, carbon fiber tube and Moonlite temperature compensated focuser called Temple 28. Temple 20 is an 8" LX200 with an SBIG ST-7e and Johnson Cousins filter. In January of 2010 the IAU named an asteroid after me 50687 Paultemple. This was a singular honor that I never expected to receive!
