Armchair Stargazing: Remote Astro Imaging in Chile


Ted Wolfe returned to the Martz-Kohl Observatory this year, in person, with an exciting video tour prepared in collaboration with National Geographic Magazine as well as some of his latest astro images. The videos focused on a trip to his observatory in the Atacama Desert in northern Chile which he can operate remotely from anywhere in the world. But as always, Ted’s ultimate goal is the heavens. His spectacular images of deep space take viewers along to explore the whole universe without ever leaving our planet..

Ted Wolfe has had more than twenty of his images published in Sky & Telescope and other astronomy magazines. Large scale prints of his work are on permanent display at the University of Notre Dame and the University of Florida. He has exhibited widely, including a 20 month one-man show at the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral. Ted and his wife Nancy spend winters in Naples, Florida and summers at the Chautauqua Institution, here in Western New York. They lived in Lakewood, NY for 16 years, and he has spoken a number of times at the Martz-Kohl Observatory.
