StageFright Astrophotos

When I was 15 years old my Aunt hands me a fold out from a National Geographic's magazine titled "Star Birth in the Orion Nebula." These were some of the first images the Hubble Space Telescope had taken of the Orion Nebula and this began my love for astronomy. A week later my Aunt was killed by a drunk drive. This Nebula is the only Nebula you can see with the naked eye and has served as a personal memorial for her.

I spent the next 25 years always looking up at the night sky. I'd had a few telescopes but never really invested the time and money needed to get serious. I guess visual astronomy never impressed me as much as seeing those images from the Hubble. Then late in the year of 2019 I stubbled across Astrophotography. I could not believe what I was seeing and let alone the images were being taken from peoples backyard. I was simply blown away.

I took my first astrophotography image of the Orion Constellation on March 12th 2020 with my Nikon D3200 DSLR on just a regular old tripod. This kicked off a passion that has grown daily. There are very few clear nights my rig isn't outside imaging our beautiful Galaxy and beyond. With the little free time I have I am processing, reprocessing and learning from my mistakes, trying to produce the best image possible so that I can share them with you.
