This site shows the astrophotography of Russell Croman
Russell is an amateur astronomer whose astrophotography is far from amateur. Living in Austin, Texas and with a dark skies observatory in New Mexico, he takes his astrophotography very seriously.
The photography on the site is stunning. It covers the whole astrophotography range from the solar system to galaxies and nebula. They are primarily color images, though there are some in monochrome, where appropriate. All images are accompanied by exposure and equipment details.
The website is clearly and well organized and navigation is easy. Images are divided into main sections by subject. There are sections covering the equipment used, as well as useful resources. There is an easy to use system that allows you to order prints of any of the images you want and there is a separate store to order either the prints of Russell’s homegrown software.
This is a great and inspirational site and is well deserving, both for the great images and the site itself, of the Site Award. Well done Russell.
