My true artistic passion is photography. When it comes to my astronomy, I’m mostly an imager these days, but I do actually prefer the term Astrophotography. I do still like the eyepiece view, but not fuzzy stuff. Planets, the moon, star clusters, and my FAVORITE, globular clusters. Galaxies never impressed me through the eyepiece and the first time I put a camera on one… I was ruined for life. My favorite visual scope is somebody else’s big giant dob…

Galaxies rule!

Galaxies rule!

I am fortunate and honored that my work has appeared in the pages of Sky & Telescope, Astronomy, Amateur Astronomy, Astronomy Technology Today, Sky at Night, Time Magazines Web site, Universe Today, Space Weather, and others. I’ve also won a few awards and contests, and this is gratifying; it’s now why I do it, but it is nice to be recognized and to have my skills measured as I attempt to improve them.

My online gallery is just a few folders up on this server.

I’m also on Astrobin here:
