Welcome to the Images of Robert Brunck ...

This website is a collection of my photographs and artwork. I work in three areas of imaging, General Photography, Astrophotography, and Painting ... I hope you enjoy exploring the images and the information that I have to share ...


Photographs of Denali Alaska from 2007

I finished gathering together my photographs from a Denali flight tour with K2 Aviation out of Talkeetna Alaska. We were very fortunate to have an absolutly beautiful day at the mountain. It was t-shirt weather when we landed on Ruth Glacier. I have reprocessed these raw image files with Photoshop CS6 and the new version of this collection is much nicer than from 5 years ago. The Denali 2007 Collection of photographic prints is avalible for purchase at the Print Collections Link. These images were acquired with my trusty old Canon 10D and Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 EX DG Macro lens.


Photographs of Point Lobos State Park

I purchased an HP Designjet Z3200 24" wide carriage printer in November 2012 and I am now offering prints for purchase. I sold my first 20x30 inch print in November. Collections of photographic prints for purchase are available at the Print Collections Link. The first collection is my photographs from Point Lobos State Park captured on March 13, 2012. Point Lobos is on the California coast just south of Carmel. These images were acquired with my new Canon 5D Mark II. I will be adding new collections as quickly as I can put them together. The Z3200 printer is an outstanding printer. It has a good colorimeter built into the pen carriage and it can print and test a color profile patern and create its own color profile automatically, with any paper you add. I am very happy with the prints I am getting with the Z3200 printer. I think you will be too ...


I purchased a Canon 5D Mark II last February and I am very excited about how well this camera works. It produces amazing images. I purchased the kit camera with the 24-105 f/4L IS lens and after testing it for a few months now I think I got a good copy of the lens. I am getting very nice images with it. I will be looking to purchase more lenses in the future to go with this camera as money permits. My current lens collection is as follows ... 24mm f/2.8, 50mm f/1.8, 50mm f/2.5 macro, 17-40mm f/4L, 24-105 f/4L IS, 100mm f/2.8 macro, 200mm f/2.8L (my favorite), 300mm f/4L IS. My older Sigma 24-70 f/2.8 EX DG lens was broken in a fall while backpacking two years ago. The 40D survived just fine but the autofocus no longer works of the Sigam lens.


I have added an image of M1 the Crab Nebula to the astrophotos page. It was taken with the 12.5" f/4.8 and the QHY8 camera in Corvallis Oregon. This image was processed with PixInsight after conversion and stacking with Images Plus. I am finally beginning to understand some of the features of PixInsight. This is a powerful program. Take a look in the Astrophotograpy Page.


I have added my first-light image with a QHY8 chilled CCD camera to the astrophotos page. It looks like this camera is going to take the astrophotos to a new level. Take a look in the Astrophotograpy Page.


I have added a first installment of images from Paris captured in October of 2006. Paris is a beautiful city to vist. I highly recommend it to any who love art. It was tough to decide which images to post out of the 900 photos that I captured. I have added 83 images to this collection. I hope you enjoy them ...


Here is my first implementation of Frames throughout the website. Please let me know if you find any problems ... Thanks.


There are two new images taken with the 40D in the Astrophotography section, NGC 7008 and M42, the Orion Nebula. The Orion Nebula image was taken when the moon was nearly full and the color that was captured was quite a surprise.


I am learning how to use Frames in my webite. I will be making changes throughout the site to make things a little better suited to the environment. I also have a couple of new astrophotos posted, a small planetary nebula NGC 7008, and M16 the "Eagle Nebula"... I can't quite seem to settle on the processing for M16 but I decided to upload it as-is for now. These were both taken with the Canon 40D


I have uploaded a new image of the Trifid Nebula taken with the 12.5" f/4.8 scope and the Canon 40D ...


I have now finished updating my old 12.5" telescope adding a quality f/4.8 primary mirror from John Lightholder of Lightholder Optics. From the brief amount of observing I have done with it I think this scope is going to work out well. It's 60" focal length will be very nice for wider field imaging. I can't wait to get it out into darker skies. There are a couple of new images with this scope taken at first light ...

In addition, I have just purchase a Canon EOS 40D to take my photography to the next level. The first thing I noticed about this camera is that it responds very quickly. There is no lag in processing images in the camera. The 40D also has great low light performance. In my opinion ISO 1600 is quite usable. And a very significant upgrade is that the Live View works very well for live focusing on the telescopes. This promises to be be a very nice upgrade from the 10D ...


I have added a tribute to James Enemark and his watercolors. Jim was a very special person in my life. He was my art teacher, a good friend, and an inspiration to me for many years. He passed away May 19, 2006 ...
