For the last 10 years I have had my hands in photography. I have taken pictures for lots of beautiful families, babies, and weddings. I have taken a break from all that and over the last year I have been exploring the night sky with my camera. When the nights are clear I find a new spot in the sky and I capture images from what I can see or sometimes not see but know is there. This is my adventure in astrophotography. It is a challenge and a joy to find new gems in the night sky.
I started my adventure with an Meade ETX80 I found at a Yard Sale. I quickly realized this scope was a great scope for viewing the night sky, and made some tweaks of my own to convert it to allow for imaging.
I have had my images featured and published worldwide, so of those publications include:
Sky & Telescope
New York Times
British Royal Observatory
