Recent Astrophotos

Welcome to the astrophotography corner of my personal web site. Here you'll find my photos of astronomical objects ranging from nearby subjects such as meteors, the moon, planets, and the sun, to distant objects such as gas and dust clouds and star clusters inside our galaxy, to galaxies outside our own Milky Way galaxy. My special interests are wide-field photos (as opposed to highly magnified views such as from the Hubble telescope), and especially of challenging transient targets such as meteors, comets, and eclipses.
I welcome any questions or comments you care to send, especially if you are also interested in astrophotography. I hope the technical info I have on the site will aid and encourage your own astrophotography efforts.
