About Me

Thanks for taking the time to look at my Blog. I have not been into Astrophotography for very long and wanted to share my experience with others trying to learn this art form. I am a Man of many hobbies and often find that life is not giving me enough time to do all the things that I want to do. I am married with a grown up Daughter (so I’m on the older side of the hill)

I have three main areas of interest. The challenge of taking nice pictures of the night sky has become an obsession (ask my Wife). I also am a Pilot and love to fly on the Weekends. I fly Light Sports Aviation High and Low performance aircraft. I also own a Microlight for that open air motorbike in the sky flying. You can visit my local airfield by clicking on the links below

I work as a Contract Computer Tec, and also produce Aviation, Music and Astronomy Electronic products. At some stage I hope to be able to offer some of the Astronomy based products direct from this Blog. The main reason for wanting to post this Blog is to help those starting out.. Anger and frustration are all part of this hobby, but with time (lots of it) you will be able to get great shots from your telescope. This Blog is mainly about using the LX200 but can be applied to all types of setups

  1. this is also a relatively new field for me, having been doing photography since I was 13 yrs old, and I am just over that hill now, and loving doing digital photography, call it immediate gratification seeing my photos and not having to wait for the things to develop. Being in South Australia as well, I am waiting on some decent lightning storms, few and far between but when we get them they are fantastic. I also have an aspi son who is obsessed with the sky, stars, astronomy and aircraft. and weather patterns. This is just another avenue of connection with him. 🙂 Will let you know what the lightning trigger is like when I get it.

    • Thanks Geniene for your visit and the purchase of my Lightning Trigger. I hope to be able to collect customer images in time and post them here on the site. There is a thread on the Ice In Space Forum that talks about lightning triggers and many members have purchased these triggers with great results. I am sure you and your Son will have lots of fun. Digital Photography is fantastic, and mixing that with Astronomy is very rewarding indeed.
