About Me


I am Anand Vijayan. I live in Leander, Texas in a relatively light polluted (Bortle 8) area.

I am a techie by day. By night, I am an amateur astrophotographer, and I mean amateur in the true sense! I started this hobby in mid-2018 and I still know very, very little about this space, but I am enjoying learning things at a rapid pace.

All of my captures can be seen on my instagram account, backyardstarman
