Welcome graphic

Astrophotography is more than a hobby for me. It's a passion, the way I capture and celebrate the universe we live in. On this site, I will display some of my favorite astro photographs.

With my Nexstar 11, Borg 100ED, and Personal Solar telescopes, I have captured the planets, sun, moon, stars and galaxies as I try to explore the universe. I will change the photographs weekly, so check back often.

Slooh Observatories Remote Imaging

Using the mission cameras at the Slooh Observatories in Chile, the Canary Islands, and Australia, I used to remotely image solar system and deep sky objects by remote control using the internet. These are actual images that were  taken in real time. Below the images I have given the location of the observatory used to take the images.
