Comet Tuttle Dec'07



Hi!  I'm Mike Broussard.  Welcome to my home page!    

This is my work-in-progress webpage for my personal interests.    Synergy ITG, which is where I work, let me put it up here.  I have had other web sites on the internet on and off since 1995.  This is it's latest incarnation. 

Well, take a look around.  I am an amateur astronomer, so the slant for my site is astrophotography.  Among the links in the sidebar area to the left are pictures of comets, the moon, some planets, meteors and deep sky objects.  The newest images are linked at the bottom of the page.  

If you enjoy looking at my pictures, send me some email and let me know.   I enjoy taking pictures like this very much and enjoy sharing them via the Internet with all of you even more!

Thanks for visiting.  Enjoy your stay.   :-)
