Astronomy

When I was a child, I always told people I was going to be an Astronomer when I grew up. That never happened as it turned out, but astronomy was always a passion of mine. In 2001 I rediscovered my interest in astronomy, and I haven’t looked back!

Online Astrophoto Gallery – my most recent astrophotos (2007 to present) are hosted here, along with my fellow astronomy buddies. Archived 2004-2008 photos.

Astro Observing Log – I keep an online observing log, including  photos


  • Telescopes – telescopes and mounts I use
  • Accessories – eyepieces, filters, binoviewers, cases, clothing & comfort
  • Imaging hardware – my photographic equipment
  • Binoculars – which binoculars are good for astronomy, and how to use them
