  3. Thanks guys and gals will post more moon and plane images asap cheers Bob
  4. On the day that airbus announced that it was stopping production of its giant a380 double decker airliner, i snapped this image of a british airways a380 transitting the moon on its way back to heathrow. i took the shot from ashton court esatate, in south bristol. ive been lucky with this spot before, so bored, i thought id give it a go. regulars may remember me from a couple of years ago, but i no longer do any DSO imaging. anyway this image was taken using a canon 40d fitted with a sigma 120-400mm lens. hope you like and all coments welcome. cheers bob

  10. good morning everyone please would it be possible for someone to message me the photo gallery email address of Astronomy Now magazine.....i would be most grateful, as i have an image that i would like to send them. cheers bob
  11. evenin all ive been a long time away from DSO imaging....something that i have since given up, but i have returned to using my trusty canon camera for lunar imaging. anyhow, i went up to ashton court estate yesterday to walk the dogs, only to return a couple of hours later to grab this shot. i knew before hand that there was a good chance of imaging a plane transiting the moon, but had to wait over 3 hours in the cold for it to finally happen.....and yes i was very lucky! so here it is......an easy jet airbus a320 making a dog leg high above bristol set against a rising moon! please feel free to comment.....good or bad. thanks for looking cheers bob canon 40D sigma 120-400mm lens 1/1000th sec f11 800asa
