WELCOME … to a my blog I started in February 2011 to complement my photo gallery site Amazing Sky.Photoshelter.com that features searchable galleries of hundreds of my astrophotos. Also, please visit my main website AmazingSky.com.
In this blog I present information about current sky events, and amazing things to see in the night sky.
I illustrate the entries with an eclectic mix of favourite and recent images, from shots of daytime phenomena to long-exposures of deep-sky objects. All are taken with amateur telescope gear and digital SLR cameras.
The photos are accompanied by stories, tips and techniques from my astrophotography exploits, both at home and from trips around the world to shoot the sky.
For more information about photo techniques see my new ebook, How to Photograph and Process Nightscapes and Time-Lapses.
I hope you enjoy the blog. Please leave comments or questions or sign up to subscribe to news of new entries, via e-mail notices.
Thanks for stopping by! Clear skies!
