About Me

I've been photographing the night sky and blogging about it for a few years, but I'm still an astronomical newbie. My approach is to learn by doing, and to try new techniques to get the most out of modest equipment. I love "informed stargazing" and I definitely think of myself as a skywatcher and amateur astrophotographer.

I like to experiment with different camera techniques and tricks, like taking a photo of the moon with a flash to trick a point-and-shoot into the right shutter speed. It doesn't always work, but it helps me learn more about how cameras work.

I thought I'd also include some accomplishments on this page as well. I get a proud fuzzy feeling every time my stuff is featured in other places - or even published!
