IC434 Horsehead Nebula Image by Sean Killian

Welcome to PhotonPup!

Hello, my name is Sean Killian and I live in St. Charles, Missouri. I am new to Astrophotography starting with it in May 2020 and thought starting this site may be a great way to share the love of space with everyone who might visit and you never know, maybe because of what you see here you’ll try it out too.

I had been looking for a telescope for years but never took the plunge. I am so glad I did!

Not only did purchasing a telescope make 2020 and all that came with it a little easier, it opened so many new opportunities to experience life and share it with friends and family.

Also, many times when I am outside either setting up for a night under the stars or just sitting there enjoying the night sky while the telescope is imaging, I am joined by my two Soft Coated Wheaten Terriers, Adelaide and Odin. My “PhotonPups!”

I do hope you find this site interesting and informative. I’ll keep PhotonPup updated with each new adventure.
