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!

In the vast world of astronomy tools, the Seestar S50 by ZWO stands out as a trailblazing innovation. This compact marvel packs a telescope, electrical focuser, astronomical camera, ASIAIR, altazimuth mount, dew heater, and filter wheel, all while weighing a mere 2.5kg.
