Welcome to my world of astrophotography. I am the developer of Astrodon filters for astrophotography and research, But, first and foremost, I am an astrophotographer. I view myself as a technical artist. A landscape photographer on a cosmic scale. This site shares my passion for this demanding, technical hobby with images of sometimes famous and often times rarely photographed galaxies, nebula and star clusters.
