These are all astrophotos taken from my back garden in the East Midlands in the UK. I took my first crude astrophotos in July 2018 on very basic kit which has been gradually upgraded alongside my expanding skill set.

A little about me

I am an amateur astronomer based in the East Midlands in the UK. I am also by profession an aerospace engineer and a senior university lecturer in solid mechanics. I find astronomy to be the most rewarding hobby: It is simultaneously science, maths, art and theology. This blog is for all my astro projects, which span astrophotography, general astronomy and software development; related topics such as my techniques and my equipment; as well as slightly tangential topics in spacecraft engineering.
