KernowBeard

Hello from Cornwall!

Recommended Posts

After always looking around the site, be it at pictures or advice, I finally decided to make an account!

Been in love with astronomy since year 6 and eventually delved into astrophotography. Primarily wide field with a DSLR but have always wanted to do it with a telescope and such.

Ige attempted DSO imaging with a 300mm lens and stacking hundreds of lights but that can only do so much. 

Planning on getting a proper setup within the next year and having a real good go at it!

Below are two shots I've done in the past (if that's alright to post in this).

Durdle Door. Not a unique shot by any means but always wanted one of it.

Recent eclipse at Boscastle Harbour. Rather chuffed with this one.

Looking forward to exploring the site more and (hopefully) start my own adventure in DSO imaging!

Clear Skies!

Great images. Welcome to the forum from a fellow Cornishman. I live in Hertfordshire these days but have family down there still, so do most of my imaging from a dark site on the edge of Bodmin Moor.

Welcome to SGL, it's a really friendly site.  

Have to say,  WOW what fantastic images.  If they were mine I'd have them printed onto canvas and up on the living room walls ?

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone!

While I save up the funds for the gear, I'll be doing the old school method of hundreds of untracked short exposures to create some very basic images. It'll hopefully keep the blood flowing until the next step, so to speak.
