Chris’s unique high-resolution digital photographs reflect his skills learned from years of electrical engineering working on high-precision optics and robotics. As a student, Chris placed first in the Northeast United States IEEE intercollegiate robotics competition. He then worked as a telescope designer on the staff of the University of Arizona Steward Observatory, building the control system for the primary optics for the Large Binocular Telescope (the world’s largest cast-glass telescope mirror). Chris continued at Electro-Optical Systems Technologies, Inc. working on other telescopes such as the PanSTARRS telescope in Hawaii, considered the world’s largest digital camera, which discovered the PanSTARRS comet in June, 2011.
