From his self-made 8’ x 8’ backyard observatory in Michigan, Terry Hancock produces astronomical imagery rivaling that of NASA or JPL. His compositions are often the result of 15 hour integrations or longer, and feature such incredible attention to detail, framing, and color, that you could be forgiven for mistaking them as exquisitely crafted paintings. Much more of his work is available on his website, and on Flickr.
