Imaging the Night Sky
I designed and built Welford Observatory in 2007 to get started in the fascinating hobby of deep sky astrophotography. Some of my favourite images appear below and a blog is shared to help others as they've helped me over the years - enjoy your visit.
This is my main imaging camera - the ASI1600MM - it's a mono camera attached to an 8 position filter wheel containing Luminance, Red, Green, Blue, H-alpha, Sulphur ii and Oxygen iii filters
Altair 115mm triplet APO telescope used for most targets
The North America and Pelican Nebula in Cygnus (Sulphur ii, H-alpha, Oxygen iii)
