Imaging telescopes:


NGC5053 is a faint globular cluster in Coma Berenices. Interested in learning how to navigate the skies, learning which telescope is best for you and what you can expect to see? "Astronomy for Everyone" is a concise introduction to astronomy which explains the basic concepts and terms of astronomy with the use of simple analogies and examples. Astronomy for Everyone explains and shows examples of the different celestial objects found within our Universe using astrophotography taken from my Owl Mountain Observatory. Available on Amazon, iBooks and other outlets. My new book "The Coexistence of Science and Religion" examines the relationship between theism and science. As a former NASA scientist/engineer and progressive theist I’ve done a concise examination of a number of scientific disciplines ranging from cosmology to evolutionary molecular biology using language and examples that the non-scientist can easily understand. Available on Amazon, iBooks and other outlets.
