Tony Pilato with his Celestron CG-11 at the end of the Night in Brosville, VA.
Tony Pilato's interest in astronomy began when he was 12 years old, and received his first telescope. He quickly became interested in astronomy and astrophotography, and built a 10 Inch Newtonian Reflector. He attended RIT
for PhotoScience and Engineering , and spent 20 years in photographic manufacturing, holding positions which ranged from Process Engineering to Operations Management. He was the Vice President of the Kopernik Astronomical Society and had volunteered for over 6 years at Kopernik Observatory. Anthony made a career change, and was the Astronomer/Lead Educator at Kopernik Observatory and Space Education Center.
Tony has now moved to Virginia
in search of better skies and weather. His hobbies include long exposure film astrophotography of deep sky objects with his 11-Inch Schmidt Cassegrain Telescope
and other assorted equipment, Public Programs for the Solar System Ambassador
Program, (Tony has been a
Solar System Ambassador since 2004), Cosmology, Quantum Physics, and studying Mesoamerican Cultures.
