     I have taken a keen interest in astrophotography and amateur astronomy in general. I have travelled to several dark sky parks and enjoyed the cosmic display of the stars. Stargazing became an ever expanding hobby Humbled by my new found knowledge and excited to dig deeper into the field and explore the world of astronomy.

     Cities these days block out most but the brightest stars and planets, so we have to make more effort these days to go see the night sky like our ancestors were easily able to before artificial light pollution was even a thing, often driving hours away from cities in search of dark skies.Most people I know have never seen the Milkyway our home galaxy with their naked eyes.

     Chasing the milkyway every remote travel destination I visit now has become a routine and I am still amazed by the beauty of the night sky. Below are some of my recent attempts to capture the milkyway.
