On Saturday 7th Witton Country Park in Blackburn through their own bonfire and fireworks display so i grabbed my camera and tripod and went 2 get a few snaps. Just a shame it had to rain as rain drops ended up on the lens.

Just a few of the hundereds I took.

thanks for the kind words guys,

as i speak the moon is looking bright in the sky above a neighbours house so i might try get a few more shots before the clouds roll in. wouldnt it be great if it was only cloudy when there was a thunderstorm during the day then clear for observing all night. what cruelty lol

57  General Category / Photography / Re: just practicing on: November 03, 2009, 05:14:41 pm
is there a website where i can see where the planets will roughly be? i would love to get an image with a planet or two along with the moon lol
58  General Category / Photography / just practicing on: November 03, 2009, 04:48:45 pm
i have just purchased a camera so just before the full moon i decided to get a few shots of it from my back garden. remember i am learning lol

could anyone tell me if this was a planet with the moon it was taken lookin to the southwest on 29/10/09 at 19.40.

59  General Category / Introductions / Hey guys newbie here on: November 03, 2009, 01:53:04 pm
hey guys,

just thought i would say hello and introduce myself,

my names danny, i am 22 and live in blackburn, lancashire. i have always been into severe weather but recently i stumbled upon martin mckennas website and sine then i have gotten into astronomy. (thanks martin).

i currently own a digital camera which i try and photo severe storms with and have recently had a go at some lunar photography aswell. i am hoping to get a 6'' newtonian refelector pretty soon and i have also got some plans to build a 8'' dobsonian scope, if i do well with these i might try a bigger 16'' scope.

i think thats enough from me for now

thanks guys

p.s could someone tell me how i post images please thanks
