About

Welcome

Hello and thanks for visiting my site.  My name is Sean Molony and I live in South Louisiana.  I got started in Astrophotography in December of 2016.  Like most of us I started with a meager telescope and my old Nikon D100.  Since that time I have added to my setup and walked the very long road called the “Learning Curve.”

Its become a passion of mine to explore the star systems and work to create photographs of what I see.  I’m still a newcomer to the artform and have much to learn.  I owe a debt of gratitude to a lot of people online who have put up with me and helped me along the way.  If you’re new to Astrophotography then I encourage you to stick with it and never give up.  The challenges are great but the rewards are greater still.

This site is a place to share my work and the work of those that I have become close freinds with.  Information on how to contact me will become available in the days ahead.

Red Stick is French for Baton Rouge (even though it’s backwards) and dates back to 1699, when French explorers noted a red cypress tree stripped of its bark that marked the boundary between Houma and Bayou Goula tribal hunting grounds. They called the tree “le baton rouge,” or red stick.
