About this blog

The story begins, from humble ignorance filled with enthusiasm!

Well I know it was Jupiter anyway!

Ok, so the photo isn't a classic but to me it's a masterpiece :-) ...the first time I have ever seen Jupiter through a telescope let alone been able to photograph it. Pretty awesome to be honest considering I've managed to take a photo of a planet over 550million km away and whilst I don't think it'll win any prizes it has made me a happy man!

Over the Moon!

ok, I thought I'd start with something simple just to get a feel for the scope n camera :-) ...what was very evident was the speed at which the moon moved in the eyepiece! Having said that I was rather pleased with myself, even if to the experts it's unimpressive!

Sky Watcher Arrival!

Well it arrived safely and after some minor adjustments she is now setup n ready for a clear night! ...just need to add the Barlow n DSLR.

In the beginning...

...there was just me, a clear sky and a sense of wonder. If only I could pluck one of the little lights out of the sky, place it in the palm of my hand and admire it's beauty a lot more closely! I finally decided after seeing some rather striking photographs of the the Moon to turn my obsession of photography and of the heavens into a new hobby. So with some research, a reasonable amount of cash (in my books anyway) I took the plunge. Tomorrow my very first telescope arrives (Skywatcher 150P)
