This site is designed to take complete amateurs through the Astrophotography process and set you up with the basics to further hone your new hobby. As I take images I will be posting the stacked and processed result along with all the relevant information used to take the image including:- the Camera’s settings like ISO, exposure, equipment used etc… With this information the image can be used as a basis to replicate the image to help you to get an understanding of the process 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 .

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.
