I started out with a 5.1in Newton on EQ3 mount, and developed a passion for photography when I figured how to connect a webcam to the telescope. Ever since I’ve been hooked. My computers and engineering background make for a great match in understanding signal to noise ratio and image processing. Living near a big city, I have little choice but to leave it to the electronic eye and do my “observations” from a computer screen.
My goal is to share with you my photos, some of the techniques/tools I use and hopefully get you to look up at the sky a little more often.
