This view shows Max observing at his SkyWatcher Pro ED-80 refracting telescope.  He images with a ST2000XM CCD camera from the Santa Barbara Instruments Group.  Max makes color photographs by taking black and white images through colored filters, then colorizing and combining the images. 

As a member of the Texas Astronomical Society of Dallas, Max observes from various locations in Texas and southeast Oklahoma where the skies are less light-polluted.  He has also traveled internationally to take astrophotographs.
