I’ve always been amazed by the night time sky. Growing up I remember getting my first telescope for Christmas, it was a 60mm Meade which I still have, and with it I showed my family the rings of Saturn. However, It wasn’t until many years later, when I finally saw the dust lanes of the Milky Way galaxy in the backyard of a friends house that it ignited a passion. That summer I purchased a 5” Mak-Cas telescope and really began my journey through the Cosmos. For me, astrophotography combines two loves, photography and the night time sky. There is so much beauty in the night sky which only long exposure photography or EAA can bring out in detail.
