The North America Nebula and Pelican Nebula

Hi all!

Well, I was finally awarded my Master of Astronomy in astrophysics on February 25, 2010. Not long after that, James Cook University bestowed upon me the 2009 University Medal for outstanding academic achievement at the Masters level. Clicking the link at the end of this sentence will allow you to view my curriculum vitae. Also, I can be contacted here.

I made the above image using a Tzec Maun Observatory instrument located in New Mexico. If you would like to see a couple more of my images that were made with Tzec Maun instruments in Australia, click the following links: Lobe of gas expelled by the giant star called Eta Carinae and Galaxy NGC 4945. Any organization that wishes me to give a presentation and talk on a number of my most spectacular images should contact me here.

As I've said in earlier posts, I've seen too many people buy what they think is a great telescope without realizing they got a poor deal for their money. If you or someone you know is considering the purchase of a telescope, don't do it until you get the knowledge you need. Just click on the link in the left panel labeled Amateur Astronomy (A Guide) and then go to the section titled How to choose a telescope.

There are still free scientific software downloads and project details available on this site. Again, see the links in the left panel.

I created this website as a public service to show young students and curious adults that science can be fun! It is my hope that you truly enjoy this website.
