Since July, Albert Brox III, a sophomore at Barnstable High School, has taken on the challenge of learning astrophotography in the David Cole Observatory. Albert is being mentored by Mike Renzi (BHS alum, software engineer, and astrophotographer), who believes that astrophotography is truly rocket science.

Mike Renzi, the Enoch Cobb Trust, the BEF, Todd & Beth Marcus, and Barnstable High School’s Technology Department members have provided generous support and expertise.

Albert has been able to image and process deep space objects as far away as 12,300,000 light years. 1 light year is equal to 6,000,000,000,000 miles.
