Christopher Go



Peeking through his first set of binoculars at a young age, Christopher Go had no idea how the images being reflected back at him would change his life as he knew it. For four years, Go viewed the world through the lenses of his binoculars and, at the same time, got a closer look into his passion. In 1990, he received his first telescope and began exploring the world of astroimaging. Christopher Go founded the Astronomical Society at the University of San Carlos in his native Philippines, has co-authored articles in numerous scientific journals including Nature. Go is also a current member of the American Astronomical Society and its Division for Planetary Sciences. Go uses a Celestron C14 and a Celestron Skyris camera to capture his astrophotography and the hearts of his avid followers.
