Being a mainly visual observer, I do not have many pictures to show – and those that I have are a long way from being up there with the worlds best! As time goes on I am hoping to add considerably to the quality and quantity of the pictures in this gallery.

Astrophotography is considerably more difficult than you might think. Practise and experience will help improve matters, although  with the advent of affordable DSLR cameras, dedicated astronomy CCDs and of course webcams, quality imaging tools are now available. Armed with a bit of patience and a lot of practise high quality images of the solar system, galaxies and nebulae should be within anyones reach. So there’s hope for me yet!
