Hello from Winchester
« on: 20:33:27, 01 March, 2017 »
Hi All,
I'm new to astronomy and astrophotography although I've been a keen camera user for many years, I've tried some night sky photography with my X-E1 and an 18mm lens, as I've got a fairly well equipped workshop I intend to build the barn door tracker detailed in the "Sky at night" which should help improve my results, I also intend to modify a (decent) web cam to use on my dobsonian reflector, so stand by for some daft questions  :laugh:
