Sean Walker joined the staff of Sky & Telescope in 2000. A graduate of Massachusetts College of Art, Sean brings extensive experience with digital image-processing techniques, as well as decades of visual observing. A self-described "gear head," he is constantly testing out or trading astronomy equipment.
Rather than concentrating on one imaging discipline, Sean pursues a multitude of imaging projects, from deep exposures of faint galaxies, to capturing high-resolution records of the Sun, Moon, and planets with an ever-changing arsenal of cameras and telescopes.
Sean is a partner and data specialist for the MDW Sky Survey, an all-sky survey of hydrogen-alpha nebulosity and has been a contributing author to several published scientific papers.
