About Me

Ever since watching the Voyager on TV as it passed Jupiter, I've wanted to pursue the stars.  As early as 12 years old, I recall wanting to get a PhD in orbital mechanics and work at JPL.  I ended up taking a different course through aerospace engineering, technical Japanese interpretting, and software engineering while working at Boeing, Amazon, Xbox and others. 

Most of my obvserving is visual, but recently I've taken a renewed interest in astrophotography.  I live and work 100% remotely from central Washington (Chelan area), and enjoy seeing the Milky Way just 10 feet from my front-door. 

For the past ten years, I've built and operated the SAS website and backend IT (email, web hosting, etc). 

In 2014, I was recognized by Astronomical League for its Webmaster Award.

About Me

Hooked on telescopes and astronomy since I was a kid.  I always thought I might retire somewhere with dark skies and build an observatory and learn astrophotography.  Then I thought why wait? - I can learn astrophotography now!  So I bought a new Newt, an RC, and some gear and I'm learning a lot in my yard under suburban skies.  I have been enjoying meeting other amateur astronomers and attending SAS star parties.

About Me

I love science in many ways, from aeronautics to computer and micro-controller programming.

I'm just a beginner on astronomy, hoping to make this science another passion in my life.

About Me

I am a novice at stargazing and hope to improve my proficiency.  I have spent my career in financial services largely because my all-girls high school didn't have a physics class.  Making up for that in my adult years, I'm hoping to improve to ultimately studing and photographing the night sky!  I have a lot of happy learning to do!
