If you go outside on a clear night, the views are spectacular. Doesn’t matter where you are. We’re floating on a rock that’s racing around a star in the middle of something we’ll never fully understand. I’ve spent the last couple years getting back in touch with that youthful wonder of just staring up into the sky and wondering what I can see. This is a sampling of some of my astrophotography work done with an 11″ Celestron telescope mostly in my backyard with a fancy little CCD camera late at night.
