Astrophotography

Stars, Planets & Nebula Photos


I'm quite new to Astrophotography, both with the DSLR camera and lens, or camera mounted on a telescope.

So this will be a range of different photos that I have taken using different methods and I will talk about my experiences on my blog.

My first attempts have been of the Lunar Eclipse in January 2019. A step quick learning curve as it happened only 4 weeks after getting the scope.
