Astrophotography has been a passion of mine since I first captured a photo of Comet Levy in 1991 using a 4.5 in. Newtonian reflector. After several years of using film to record deep space objects only to end up trashing 80% because of bad focus, jammed camera, insufficient exposures, or just simply forgetting to advance the film, I discovered CCD imaging and never looked back. Astrophotography offers challenges that require a lifetime to master.

The Photographer


I am an Emeritus Professor of Psychiatry at UCSD, where my ongoing research focuses on validating neuro motor outcome measures for clinical trials evaluating therapeutic response in patients with schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and depression. Also engaged in forensic evidence interpretation, particulalry in handwriting and signature evidence. Still manage to carve out time under dark steady skies.
