WELCOME … to a my blog I started in February 2011 to complement my main website at AmazingSky.com.
In this blog I present information about current sky events, amazing things to see in the night sky, reviews of equipment, and tutorials on photo techniques.
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 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!
