Astrophotography of the Night Sky

Welcome to my astrophotography and astronomy website. Here you’ll see images I have taken of the night sky and deep space objects, using a variety of equipment. My story began more than four decades ago looking up at the Moon with a small telescope my Father had. Today I do astrophotography from my home in Kitchener, Ontario, Canada and also with remote telescopes located in New Mexico, Chile and Australia. I also have a Youtube channel where I discuss astrophotography, PixInsight processing as well as review and test astro products. Thank you for visiting and clear skies!
