Astrophotography by Preston S. Justis

"Into the Night"

Welcome to my page, which is dedicated mainly to Black and White Astrophotography with a 10" f/6 Newtonian telescope. I use Hypersensitized Kodak Tech Pan film for its high contrast and resolution. This has been a fine journey that I started back in 1981 when I assembled my astrophotography system and will continue to travel for many years into the future. Come explore the many different types of celestial objects that are within the reach of my telescope. While you're here, check out my new Insect Macro Photography section for a really close look at the tiny creatures around us ! -Scott
