It's been quite a few months now since I've been out for any serious sessions with the Telescope. However the bad habit of smoking does get me outside on a regular basis where naked eye observing was regularly taking place during those months.

My latest purchase is a GoPro Hero 4 Silver. Working in IT and having a love of gadgets the camera has opened up a lot of opportunities which also include using it for a bit of Astro Photography.

I only purchased the camera a few days ago and the forecast was goof for some clear skies during the evening. Leaving the GoPro in its waterproof housing the camera was mounted onto a Gorillapod and just sat on the decking outside my back door. The light in my back garden was very poor in not being able to see very much of what was around on the floor. I set the camera to take 30 second exposures constantly where over the 2 hours it recorded 240 images.

When I started viewing the images I was absolutely amazed as to how much detail it had picked up in my garden as well as picking up the movement of the sky. The amount of stars captured was also quite a surprise.

A well worth purchase where I hope to produce a lot more images similar to these but in some better locations.
