hello i'm only recently getting my act together with this, although ive had an interest for my whole life.  I have a dslr camera and am looking to get into the photography side and will be purchasing a telescope hopefully sometime this year.

I look forward to interacting with everyone on the site!!

thanks everyone I have took a few photos with the kit lens so far but as I'm sure you's are aware you cant see much!! I have been reading through the site so far and can see it is a minefield and I almost feel out of my depth but sure whats life without a challenge!!

 

Portstewart is a lovely part of the country! 

I got some pics of northern lights after about 2 weeks with the camera which really ignited my interest in all of this.  I am going to order the "every photon counts book" and hopefully will be able to input more into the site in a few months

Hi Squeek,

Welcome to SGL from a Portstewart Exile. As you already have the camera, best to start with a wide-angle lens and 20 to 30 sec exposures.

We get everywhere, don't we? I'm from Portballintrae originally
