Hi, my name is Joel Tonyan and welcome to my new website! I'm a librarian by trade and an amateur astronomer and photographer by hobby. I live in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I've been into astronomy for more than a decade, and I enjoy taking photos of the Milky Way, the moon and sun, the planets, and the myriad galaxies, nebulae, and star clusters in the night sky. I'm also an avid hiker, so I dabble in landscapes and nature photography as well. Learn more on the About Me section.
