This is the last photo I took from our old house. That backyard holds a lot of memories, even if it was horribly light polluted!

I made a lot of progress living in that downtown bungalow in terms of astrophotography, my career, and personal life.

This photo represents a lot of hard work and sleepless nights. I may print this one to hang in my office:)

Thank you for looking!
