“The most incomprehensible thing about the universe is that it is comprehensible”

Albert Einstein

“In questions of science, the authority of a thousand is not worth the humble reasoning of a single individual.”


“Astronomy compels the soul to look upwards and leads us from this world to another.”


“The most incomprehensible thing about the universe is that it is comprehensible.”

Albert Einstein

“It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.

Carl Sagan

Welcome to my world of astrophotography and photography.

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. It is a humbling experience to present to you a galaxy in vivid colors, whose light that we see left that galaxy when dinosaurs roamed our planet. Is it still there? Are they looking toward our galaxy with the same degree of wonder? I invite you to explore this cosmic world with me.  Not ready to take the jump into the cosmos, please explore my world of travel, nature and landscape photography.
Don Goldman, Ph.D. (Astrodon)
