I live in eastern Washington State. My house is under a Bortel 3, night sky. I have 12 acers, kind of a hobby farm. I own a machine shop and an electric motor repair shop. So I work by day and try to find time for astrophotography in the evenings. I started down the astrophotography road in 2020. It took over a year before I took my first photos. Still learning to process. I love a challenge and this is just what I needed to keep my mind running. I'm hooked!
