Grant Regen



Grant Regen isn't your typical 14-year-old. Before entering 9th grade this fall, he had already won Astronomy magazine's prestigious Youth Essay Contest, published his own online science magazine, and traveled across the country to attend the largest astronomy expo in the US.

Grant brings a professional approach to his hobby of amateur astronomy and astroimaging. After receiving a Celestron NexStar 8SE and Skyris 618M solar system imager, he quickly taught himself to use this advanced-level equipment and produced images almost immediately. Then, he began sharing his knowledge with others.

His blog series "Learning Skyris," featured here on, explains his process for capturing and processing images. If you've ever wanted to capture the beauty of the Moon, the rings of Saturn, or the Great Red Spot of Jupiter, let Grant be your guide! You'll be imaging in no time.
