A Lens to the Sky
I love skylines, so often a lens doesn’t do them justice but sometimes a wide lens and a moody sky can make a beautiful picture. I wish I could mount some of these at times…Enjoy the views!
A Flavour of Spring
I can’t talk obviously about the rest of the world, but here in the UK Spring has been a bit of a washout but there have been a few times where the Sun and been able to shine onto the beauty of the Spring and I’ve been able to capture a flavour of it.I hope…
The Little Green Comet
It may or may not have escaped your notice that there’s a comet in our neighbourhood at the moment. From Earth it’s a faint (like really faint) smudge that you might just be able to see with the naked eye. If you’re one of those lucky people that has the time and proper equipment to…

A few weeks ago the sky was clearer than I’ve seen it for a long time and after seeing the success of someone else taking a picture with my same camrea I thought I would try the same settings and give it a go. The big variable with taking astrophotography pictures is the quality of…
Astro Pics – 2 Planets and a Cluster
The nights over the last few weeks have been quite clear over England with the weather being unseasonably dry. This always offers some wonderful night time views of the sky and I knew it was coming up to the time where Saturn and Jupiter were in the sky.Then last week I say that yellowy star…
Moon Craters 2
It has to be said… when you start looking at Moon craters close up it can get a bit addictive. As the Moon waxes and wanes through it’s cycles the different parts of the moon are either lit up or cast into shadow, bringing out loads of detail. Somehow (don’t as me how) I managed…
