The Sky is Full of Amazing and Beautiful Things!

Galaxies, Nebulae, Star Clusters, Sun, Moon, Planets and More…

Ron Brecher in his observatory Astrophotographer Ron Brecher… I am working hard to master the “dark art” of  processing deep-sky images – galaxies, nebulae, star clusters and more. I’ve used just about every major type of digital camera and telescope design. My images of deep-sky objects, the Sun and the Moon have been used as CD cover art and beer labels, published in print and online journals and magazines, and won competitions. I enjoy giving seminars and workshops at star parties and conferences.  I’m also available to help others learn to set up and use their visual or imaging equipment and process their astroimages.
