Astronomy

This is my Astro Imaging page. One of my interests is astro imaging, using telescopes to take images of distant galaxies, planets and other deep space features. I also enjoy photographing and videoing the Northern Lights. This is just a hobby, one I find challenging as I am normally working from the middle of a town shooting through lots of light pollution. See the caption below each image for more information.
