Biography
I was born in 1959. I'm a dentist living in Hita, Oita Prefecture, Japan. Oita Prefecture is located in Kyushu island.
My interest in astronomy started at my childhood. My observatory was made for  CCD camera's imaging on March, 2000.  I have been taking images of Japanese sky with the Takahashi's telescopes, mounts and Bitran's cooling CCD camera since that time.
