philgarnham Took my first steps into the world of Astrophotography last night with my Skywatcher Telescope and Canon SLR. This is my best shot (unfortunately all were out of focus). Using a Telescope as a lens is an unbelievably tricky thing to do... or perhaps I just need to upgrade my equipment :) 7d

  •   paolo_feltron 🌜Awesome shot! 2mon
  •   ryantym Fantastic! Do you shoot in London? I'm based in Walthamstow and keen to buy a telescope but alway worry it's too bright an area 2mon
  •   philgarnham @ryantym Hi Ryan, unfortunately I'm some way out of London so can't really comment on the conditions in Walthamstow. I'm in Colchester, Essex. I live on a semi-rural estate and any additional light can be very annoying, no matter how small. I'd get In touch with a local club (if any) and see what they say. So far, it's been a pretty mind blowing hobby! 2mon
  •   boldfacefoundry Nice one, Phil! 2mon
  •   ryantym @philgarnham Great, thanks for the advice! I'll let you know how I get on! 2mon
  •   kidd78 Hey @philgarnham what telescope do you use? Incredible shots, been thinking of investing in one myself 2mon
  •   philgarnham @kidd78 hey Mike, I'm using a entry level SkyWatcher Newtonian Reflector scope which my wife bought me from Amazon. Think is cost about £80. General advice is don't worry about magnification, but get a scope with a wide aperture to let more light in. Google it ;) 2mon
