Welcome to my astrophotography site.
I have been interested in Astronomy for many years but did not get my first telescope until 2000. My interest soon turn to astrophotography, inspired by the many excellent images from across the world in magazines, and on the web. I do most of my imaging from my garden in Wiltshire, UK with the occasional trip to darker sites. I am fortunate enough to live on the edge of Salisbury Plain so do not suffer from as much light pollution as many areas in the UK. However, I still have to cope with some pollution to the south and east where I look out over the towns and villages.
I begin taking images with 35mm black and white film that I processed in my own dark room. I then progressed to CCD imaging, where I have made the most significant progress as my experience has increased.
This site contains most of my images, from the earliest, to my latest. Needless to say the quality has improved. It is hoped that by showing the good alongside the bad, others will be encouraged to keep at it.
Finally I would like to thank all those other astrophotographers out there who have shared their experience so that others like myself can progress.
Some images on this site were created with the help of the ESA/ESO/NASA Photoshop FITS Liberator.
