Welcome to Astronomy by Rick

Ever since I was a young kid growing up in rural Eau Gallie FL I’ve been fascinated with the night sky.  Astronomy has been a hobby that's stuck with me all my life.  Several years ago I started learning astrophotography.  It was a natural merging with my other lifelong hobby, photography.

It turns out that Astrophotography can be quite simple or incredibly complex. That's what's nice about it... people of all levels of skill can produce pleasing images of some astronomical object or event.

Browse the pages on this website! You'll find helpful information for beginners, weather information to help observing planning and, of course, some of my astronomy photographs.

Do astronomy and music go together? I think so, and so does Robin Spielberg! Take a look at the Spellbound Music Video featuring her beautiful piano music and some of my astronomy photos. Read my earlier post for the background story.
