Psalm 19:1-2

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands.  Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. 

Thanks for stopping by to visit!  This is a site focused on astronomical imaging.  I chose to begin this page with the opening verses of Psalm 19, one of my favorite Psalms.  These verses touch on the underlining motivation behind my long time passion for astronomy, and my desire to become proficient in the technically challenging art of astrophotography.  I put the site together as a place to display my on-going attempts to capture the grandeur of the night sky, and to share those results with others. 

For those new to astronomy, there is much to see and learn about the objects that fill the night sky.  Some of these objects are truly amazing, and show the incredible beauty and diversity of the heavens.  These objects are extremely distance and very dim, requiring hours and hours of exposure to capture.  They are objects that are shrouded by time and distance, and are only visible in the dark of the night.........hence the name of the observatory and website: "DarkSights".

There is always something else to learn in this hobby, so I really do covet your comments and suggestions concerning the website, any of the images, or my equipment.   I thank you in advance for your comments!  (click here for my e-mail address, of course you have to replace the "_at_" in the address with "@" )

I hope you feel at home as you look around.  Since I opened this page with the first couple of verses of Psalm 19, it's only fitting to end with the closing verse. 

Psalm 19:14 

May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.
