2/20/2014 M16 astrophoto to appear in Sky and Telescope’s May issue

28 February 2014

Hello Everyone,

I recently learned that my astrophoto of M16 (aka The Eagle Nebula) will appear in Sky and Telescope magazine’s May issue!

I’m told that the image will appear in the gallery section and will be about  a half-page in size.

Getting an image published in Sky and Telescope is one of the top honors for an amateur astrophotographer, so I was pretty thrilled to hear the news.  Since they will be paying me $50 for the image perhaps I can now say that I’m a “pro astrophotographer”?

I think I need a bigger telescope.  🙂
