I'm fascinated by the Moon and planets and images that capture the range and scale of light, size, and distance that they display. These strongly influence my choice of tools.

My goal is high dynamic range images that capture the fine detail and astounding range of light visible at the eyepiece of the telescope. Earthlight on the crescent Moon and high dynamic range full disk Moon images are a specialty. I'm also fascinated by the planets and moons and their interactions: conjunctions, eclipses, transits, and occultations. Capturing these multiple target subjects with full fidelity requires many exposures to allow stacking over an extremely wide dynamic range. The final results are very close to what the eye can see in the telescope eyepiece under ideal conditions.
