Hello, my name is Nico Carver. I am just getting into astronomy and astrophotography by taking widefield photographs of the stars and large nebulae with my DSLR camera.
This photo is of me using my Astrotrac mount in my backyard in Newark, DE. Since I started in January 2016, I have taken photos of the following:
Orion Nebula (M42)
Andromeda Galaxy (M31)
Witch Head Nebula (IC2118)
Flame and Horsehead Nebulae
Moon, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn, Sun, and the Mercury Transit
I hope to learn more from my fellow DAS members, and I try to attend as many of the AP-SIG meetings as possible.
