Our Story

Antoine & Dalia Grelin, Galactic Hunter

Antoine and Dalia at Kelso Sand Dunes

Hey there!

We are Antoine and Dalia - the duo behind Galactic Hunter. We're a couple based in Las Vegas, Nevada, and we take pictures of space together! It didn't happen overnight, but our love of astronomy unexpectedly transformed our lives.


We were just hobbyists posting about our progress online, and folks resonated with that. The outpour of support and countless messages for advice kept us excited and busy. Eventually, it led to us quitting our traditional jobs to create content full-time, specifically to help people learn astrophotography.


Galactic Hunter started in 2016; since then, we have grown as a brand and received awards and recognition in online and print publications. We love what we do - we have a passion for astrophotography, so it's all the more rewarding.

GH has been deeply woven into our married and professional lives. It is our life. Honestly, we wouldn't have it any other way! Astrophotography has brought a lot of happiness, friends, opportunities, and exploration our way, so we'll continue for as long as we can.

Wavy Abstract Background


Started a passion for astrophotography with binoculars on a dusty road outside of Las Vegas, Nevada.

October - bought our first full astrophotography rig.


Launched Galactic Hunter in February, and posted our first YouTube video in May - Ep #1 - Trailer.

Began creating astrophotography content (blogs, books, videos) regularly outside of our retail jobs and college studies.


Witnessed our first solar eclipse (under cloud cover...)


Published The Astrophotographer's Guidebook.


Invited to CES and saw the first smart telescopes.

Worked diligently toward monetizing our passion for astrophotography for a future without a 9 to 5.

Antoine quit his job to do astrophotography full-time.

Dalia started a career in digital marketing.


Announced the pre-order of our astrophotography course, the Galactic Course.

Road trip around the American Southwest for our 7th wedding anniversary. Best trip ever.

Visited (our hero) Charles Messier's grave in Paris and pitched the Charles Messier Grave Cleanup Project online.



Found a dog in the desert. Took her home. The sweetest girl with stars in her eyes. We named her Stella.

Crowdfunded the Messier Project and funded the grave's cleanup for 25 years. All thanks to the Astro community!

Installed our first remote astrophotography rig at Utah Desert Remote Observatories.

Dalia quit her corporate marketing career to join Antoine and work on Galactic Hunter full-time!
