Skyledge: Jim Mazur's Astrophotography
I have been an astronomy enthusiast since I was in fourth grade, when my parents bought me a 3-inch reflecting telescope. I enjoy observing the night sky with optical equipment of all types, large and small, and I have also tried many types of astrophotography.  This website displays some of my photographs, most of them taken with either an SBIG ST-8300M imager or a Canon 400D digital camera.
