I enjoy speaking to groups on my own experiences, plus I have large collections of my own astrophotos. Explaining how I obtained the images and the equipment I use, plus the importance of choosing a site and time are good topics for discussion. I have three telescopes, all equipped for solar viewing, binoculars, two DSLR cameras and tripods, with a variety of lenses. I've created a few PowerPoint presentations and can readily make others on demand to suit a particular audience.
