Description

I was asked what it takes to become an astrophotographer.
I responded just passion.

Why passion?

Because photographing the universe is a challenge and perhaps the most difficult type of photography.

Because I'm learning to be an amateur astronomer, engineer, electrician, photographer and ex++ computer operator.

Because I exercise the virtue of patience and in "why doesn't it work?" I say "how can i make it work?"

Because I have something deep in my soul that leads me miles away from home chasing the darkness of the sky.

Because it's magic to trap photons that have traveled millions of years to reach Earth.

Because that's where I realize the importance and at the same time the smallness of my individual existence based on the whole.

Because I look at the vast black sky and that gives me passion for life...
