This is a small selection from the large number of astro-photography images that I have taken from our near-Brisbane suburban backyard over the two years or so.

  • The wider angle images (eg Milky Way) were taken with a Canon DSLR mounted on a tripod.
  • The cluster, galaxy and star images were taken using my 200 mm diameter reflector telescope on a GoTo mount.  Most of these non-planetary images have been "stacked" using Deep Sky Stacker, and then post-processed using Adobe Lightroom. 
  • The planetary images were taken with a web cam attached to the same telescope and mount. They were then processed using Registax 6 and Lightroom.
