Wally Pacholka Astrophotography
From the moment I saw Wally's False Kiva photo, I knew I had to learn astrophotography. So I got myself a better camera and a faster lens and set out for some of the darkest-sky locations in the western United States... and never looked back. Thank you for continuing to be my inspiration Wally!
