Michael A. Phillips works in computer networking at Cisco Systems in Raleigh, North Carolina. He received a B.S. from SUNY Stony Brook in Astronomy and Planetary Sciences before entering the Information Technology field. After several years of shifting into the fast paced Internet boom, he got back into astronomy and imaging during the 2005 Mars apparition. He started out with an 8” SCT while growing into his old hobby. By 2011 he sought an upgrade and began plans to build his custom 14” newtonian.
His interests in planetary imaging and computers has made a nice combination to explore many software tools. He has a natural curiosity to figure things out and share what he has learned. This made Mike active on several groups where he share what he learns. He has also beta tested early software from developers and has some regular contact with many of them. Today he shares his hobby with family and the astronomy community where his work can be seen on his website.
