Eric Ramos - Friend & Advanced Amateur in the Dominican Republic.
This is how Eric introduced himself to me. Hi.This series of pictures is devoted to a remarkable individual named Eric Ramos. Eric has been an observer and amateur telescope maker for many years now. He has restored the beautiful Cave 8 inch Cassegrain pictured here. We have exchanged quite a few e-mails recently and are currently working on some telescope projects together. Every time I receive an e-mail from Eric I never know what I'll see next. The beautiful eclipse was such a pleasant surprise! I wish to share some of the images Eric has sent me and will continue to post more as they are received. I have placed excerpts of some of the e-mails with the images as I obtained them. Hence when viewing the image you can see what Eric describes to me in his own words. In some instances we talked about The AAAP Mingo Creek Observatory and the Planetarium. Eric has made specific references to the Mingo Planetaruim and compares our projector to the unit his club -La Sociedad Astronómica Dominicana uses . He is also pictured calibrating the projector on one of the images. .... Eric this site is devoted to you and your astronomical adventures. I hope you, your family and friends will enjoy !! - Al
