My name is Robert Browning and I am an amateur deep sky astrophotographer. Deep sky astrophotography is a niche branch of photography that takes images of objects in space.
I have been a lifelong lover of astronomy and always loved looking through telescopes to see what's out there. In 2018 I started attaching a DSLR camera to a telescope that had a GOTO mount and captured my first image of M31, the Andromeda galaxy. It was not a very good image, but the fact that I had a picture of another galaxy had me hooked. Today I have a few telescopes and mounts with several cameras and equipment that I use to capture these incredible images of objects in space.
I have a PhD in Applied Physics and enjoy studying astrophysics, which goes well with this hobby.
