All images displayed are those of the author, excepting those identified by others, or just unknown.
Unless otherwise noted, all displayed images were taken with digital cameras (see history) after
January 1, 2002.  Prior to this date, all images were taken with film based cameras, and were
subsequently scanned for this site.  Many of the latter images were not scanned with the best
resolution possible, and thus may vary in quality from image to image.  Furthermore, many of
the older image negatives/slides became aged or damaged (some even lost) and cannot be redone.

Many images in Jim's galleries were taken at Table Mountain Observatory (TMO), as Jim spent 47
years there (1962-2009) as a JPL/NASA astronomer.  TMO is located in southern California near
the small community of Wrightwood.

All gallery pictures are small low resolution images, however, if you are interested in obtaining full
resolution image(s), contact Jim at his e-mail address below.  Jim's many images have been used in
newspapers, magazines, professional journals, as well as on numerous internet sites throughout the
world.  Several have appeared on the "Astronomy Picture of the Day" web site.
