This site is designed to take complete amateurs through the Astrophotography process and set you up with the basics to then further hone your new hobby. I wont just be explaining to the best of my knowledge how the hobby works, as I image throughout the year I will be posting not just what I am imaging but when and how I am imaging the subject in question with information like the Camera used, the Camera’s settings ie.. ISO settings, exposure, equipment used be it a telescope, camera or camera & lens. If you are a complete beginner then a good place to start is to have a read through the Basics Page to familiarise yourself with the sort of equipment you are likely to need to get started in Astrophotography. If you have some experience in Astrophotography then feel free to take a look at the images that I have taken and if you have any Astro-photos that you have taken and would like them featured in the Users Gallery then send them to me via the Contact Page .

How to Use This Website For every picture that I take and post to the galleries I will include the following on each page - My intention is for beginners or people who haven’t imaged a certain object before to use the settings on each page to capture a similar image to the one taken by myself. I understand that everyone uses different scopes and camera equipment but by tweaking the settings a bit should get you close. I use a Canon EOS 450D Astro-modified DSLR for all of my imaging so this website is geared up for DSLR Astrophotography. In the future I may go down the cooled CCD route, possibly.
TARGET INFORMATION This is the targets data such as name, designation, size & distance from Earth
VIEWING WINDOW The best time to view the target
