In the last few days we have found out that our dear friend and colleague Chuck Wilson has passed away. Chuck was an active member of the AAA Astrophotography group, saxophone player by profession and great lover of Indian food. Chuck signed up for the very first and subsequent night sky photography classes and often met up with our various photo expeditions in Central Park, Jenny Jump or North South Lake.
