Aubrey Brickhouse has been an amateur astronomer since 1997 when he bought his first telescope (an 8” Meade SCT).

After retirement from Texas Instruments, he became a member of the Central Texas Astronomical Society (CTAS) which spans the territory of Hillsboro, Waco, Temple and Killeen. He currently is the President of the club which has around 150 members.

Aubrey has focused most of his astronomy since 2009 on Astrophotography.

He currently uses a Celestron C-11, an Astro-tech 106 Refractor mounted on a Losmandy G11 mount. His latest camera is the SBIG STT-8300M.

He also has many images from a 24” Richey-Cretien telescope at the club’s Meyer Observatory outside Clifton, TX. You may see some of his pictures (see “Photos” on the web site) and learn about CTAS at:
