Tom’s Astronomy

The heavens proclaim the glory of God. The skies display His craftsmanship.

Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make Him known.

They speak without a sound or word; their voice is never heard.

Yet their message has gone throughout the earth, and their words to all the world.

Psalm 19:1-4, New Living Translation

For every one, as I think, must see that astronomy compels the soul to look upwards and leads us from this world to another.

Glaucon, the older brother of Plato, in Plato's The Republic, Book VII,

380 B.C.

Welcome to My Astronomy Site

These few web pages are here to allow you to experience and enjoy some of my own explorations into the science and hobby of astronomy.

Here you will find a bit of my own history and some astrophotographs I’ve taken along with an explanation of some of the equipment and simple imaging techniques I’ve used to make them.

I hope you enjoy the site.
