This website is a place where I can post my images purely for the fun of it. You can find more information about the equipment I use on the About/Equipment page.

To give me something to aim for, I have set up pages to get as many Messier and Lunar 100 objects as I can. The Deep Sky page is for objects not in Messier’s catalogue and includes some more recent lists such as the Caldwell and Finest NGC catalogues.

Light pollution is a serious problem for amateur astronomy here on the edge of Edinburgh, Scotland, so this is a battle of photons vs sodium! Please come back and visit as the site develops, I make lots of mistakes, the weather gets worse and the skies get brighter.

This website is a place where I can post my images purely for the fun of it. Many are first attempts as I’m still learning digital imaging. Moon FlareI’ve only recently come back to astronomy; the last time I did any I was still using film emulsion so it’s all quite different now.The images are mostly taken with a C80ED, 7″ Mak-Cass and Canon EOS 350D, EQ6/EQMOD mount guided with an ETX-90 and SPC900NC.
