Ray Shore's Astronomy and Astrophotography Site


I've been an amateur astronomer since 1985. I've belonged to a couple of different astronomy organizations and have participated in several events over the years including star parties, public observatory nights, school science presentations, etc.

I started into astrophotography just before the Mars opposition of 2003. I've been hooked ever since. Now I'm building my astrophotography album with images of the planets, deep space objects, the moon, sun, etc. It has been a very exciting and rewarding pastime for me!

Ray Shore's Astronomy & Astrophotography Site

I developed this site to share my interest in astronomy and astrophotography with others. I try to provide useful content such as my astrophotography album, remote astrophotography setup, astrophotography tutorials, and much more. I also own and operate the website AstroPhotography Tonight where you'll find most of my new articles.

Outside of astronomy, I'm a Product Development Engineer for a large telecommunications company. I graduated from Washburn University with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Technology Administration. Also, I have an Associate of Applied Science in Quality Technology.

I hope you enjoy my site and find it useful. If you have anything you want to share related to astronomy or astrophotography, please send me an email. I would like to hear from you! Clear Skies! Ray
