Taken in Scarborough, North Yorkshire on 16 December 2017.

My main aim with this image was to show those just starting out in the world of astrophotography what can be achieved on a budget with simple and affordable equipment.  Using my iPhone and the NightCap app set to Star Trails mode I captured this as one image over a period of four hours (hence the number of airplane trails!).  I then edited the image on my iPhone using the Snapseed app to darken the sky and bring out some colour in the star trails. 

I was very pleased with the outcome given that all of this was achieved using only an iPhone and readily available, easy to use apps.

      Not as spectacular as M13 a few nights ago, but comes up nicely with Samsung Galaxy S10 and an 8" SCT. Conditions were a bit iffy.

      Hi everyone - Despite moonlight and some haze last night I thought I'd try a speculative shot of M13. 8" SCT on HEQ-5 Pro with Samsung Galaxy S10 in night mode, single shot, no fancy stuff. Came out quite well. I normally photograph the moon; I attach an old shot from that great period of weather back in April-June. The scope was undriven on an old alt-az mount, and the phone hand-held for that one.

      Hello everybody. My last imaging session left odd looking star trials in my photos, almost like a clockwise motion. My polar alignment and balance were good, so I am not sure why this issue is occuring. Below is an attached video of me scrolling through my subs. Any help/ advice would be greatly appreciated!

      Hi everyone - juts purchased my first telescope and am asking for advice on what is best to be seen through this telescope as a starter - have already seen the moon and some distant stars and am comfortable with using all of the eye pieces included. What would anyone recommend?

      Since I am very new to this, I struggle a lot. Especially when observing planets and also recently deep sky objects. My telescope is an amateur telescope and its almost 11 years old (The telescope was re used a year ago). During summer of last year I took photos of Saturn,Jupiter and a month ago took photos of Venus and Mars. About 2 days ago I stumbled upon a new thing in the sky, (Unfortunately, I didn't take a picture). It definitely was in the Orion constellation  as I had observed Betelgeuse and the 3 stars that were close to each other. After a couple of minutes later I saw 2 stars next to each other and another two which were on top of the other star, surrounding these set of stars were a blue-ish and grey-ish colour at the same time. I had done some research and many people told me it was the trapezium cluster found in Orion. I honestly don't know. Any ideas? Thanks.
