Bill Snyder Astrophotography

Hi my name is Bill Snyder, I have been involved in astrophotography since 2007, I would like to make available some of my images to you. These are a collection of Narrowband and RGB images taken from my home observatory and an observatory in the Sierra Nevada Mountains Ca. operated remotely over the Internet. Narrowband images are produced using a combination of data gathered using different filters which allow only light emitted at a very narrow wavelength by which certain elements to pass through. These are Hydrogen Alpha, Ionized Oxygen and Ionized Sulpher, commonly known as Ha OIII SII. These 3 separate images are combined to create the colorful images you see on my site. RGB images portray an object in more of a natural color, they are produced by using filters that permit the red blue and green wavelengths to pass through each particular filter. They are then combined to produce a RGB image. All the images are printed on photographic paper good for 100 years+. They are mounted on single weight mount board so they will never ripple or buckle, also any picture larger than 11X14 is mounted on 3/16 foam board for even more rigidity. These are as seen at the Art Festivals and Art Shows I attend. For more information regarding any framing, specific sizing, or custom matting (I mat and frame all of my own photographs)
Please email or call. or  724*880*3316
Thank You
Bill Snyder
