Hello from the Wirral
« on: 11:47:41, 14 November, 2017 »
Hello, I'm new to photography never mind astrophotography, but am looking forward to taking some shots when the skies clear up (that does happen right?)

I have a Canon EOS 1200D with a kit lens and a 40mm f2.8 to play with, a tripod/digital timer and a love for the skies. If all goes well I may invest in some other kit should finances allow but right now i'm just happy with what I have.

Great to be here  :D

Welcome along. That 40mm f 2.8 should give you some nice wide field shots.
