Treasures of the Universe

Astrophotography allows Astronomers, both professional and amateur, to share what they view with you.  In essence the treasures of the universe are so vast, that I cannot list all here.  From time to time, astronomers discover something hidden.  What I can do is utilize my experiences and photos to introduce others to some of these treasures or ignite their passion in Astronomy.

My astrophotography tools:

  • Orion Astroview 6 Telescope
  • Meade ETX-125 Telescope
  • The RRRT at Fan Mountain
  • Google Pixel Really Blue Smartphone henceforth and forever
  • Canon EOS XTi DSLR Camera
  • Canon EOS T3i DSLR Camera
  • My yard, especially my yard
  • Solar Filter, specifically when viewing the Sun
  • Skyglow Light Pollution Filter
  • Plossl Eye pieces
  • Orion SkyGlow Light Pollution Filter
  • Color Filters
