About

I like to display my images, research my targets and write about them in a way that is hopefully interesting to readers with a curiosity about the Cosmos.

Not every astro-image can be photogenic. None will match the Hubble Space Telescope. Not every image will be a photographic masterpiece. Some images will be about finding very tiny and faint objects.

I sometimes get asked “Why Ggreybeard?” Why the double G? The answer is simply that in a world of many ‘Greybeards‘, there is only one ‘Ggreybeard‘!

I am very grateful to all of my followers but it is impossible to follow everyone in return for following Cosmic Focus, although I will sometimes look at your website.
