Welcome to AstronomersDoItInTheDark.com

If you came to this site hoping to find images of scientists expanding their knowledge of the carnal variety, please accept my humble apologies. For, while I think we'll all agree that galaxies are impressive in their size, and many globular clusters are extraordinarily well endowed, the only thing bare on this site are references to one's ability to see the objects pictured with the unaided (i.e. naked) eye.

You see, I am a lover. But, in the context of this website, a different kind of lover. I am an "amateur astronomer", and that phrase loosely translates from Latin to a "lover of the stars". Like some who are amorous, I often pick up my camera to photograph the objects of my affection. And on this site, I would enjoy sharing these images with you - namely, my astrophotographs attempting to capture the sensuous beauty of the skies above.

Thank you for stopping by......
