The Great Big Sky
Welcome to my galleries. My base of operations is located in Springville NY just south of Buffalo. Although I have owned telescopes for most of my adult life I finally got started in astrophotography in 2014. I enjoy imaging and also eyepiece observing at various sites around Western NY and also doing remote imaging where you rent telescope usage time at observatories such as I-Telescope where you control the scope through your computer just as if it was sitting in your backyard allowing me to image objects in the southern hemisphere and also image from pristine dark sky locations. I also enjoy doing astronomy outreach programs as a volunteer with the Penn-Dixie Paleontological and Outdoor Education Center in Hamburg NY where we do regular astronomy nights in an effort to bring the wonders of star gazing to both young and old.

I have also included galleries of some non astronomical photos since my photography interests are not limited solely to the world above us but also to the world around us. These are just a few of my favorites. I can also be found on Instagram as "TheGreatBigSky" and can be reached via email at- email@example.com
As far as the links to purchase any photos. I never intended this to be a profit endeavor. The purchase aspect is run by my webmaster Smugmug.com and any purchases are done through them and their printing labs so I cannot vouch for the quality.
Once inside a gallery you can double click on any photo for an enlarged version.
