Skywatcher 80ED, Canon 7D (1 sec exposure, ISO 160) https://www.broughastronomy.co.uk/apps/photos/photo?photoID=186996936 186996936 Moon - First Light The very first image from this telescope Skywatcher 80ED, Canon 7D (1/800 sec exposure, ISO 640) https://www.broughastronomy.co.uk/apps/photos/photo?photoID=186996937 186996937 Jupiter December 2013 Jupiter in just 9 frames (and one dark) to experiment with stacking. Clearly need more practice but I've found this a very encouraging start!

Afocal iPhone image taken at the BLAS star party in March 2014, through a member's 100mm refractor's eyepiece. https://www.broughastronomy.co.uk/apps/photos/photo?photoID=191694468 191694468 HUGE Sunspot 19-10-2014 A Jupiter-sized sunspot comes into view. This one produced an X1 class solar flare on Oct 20th, disrupting HF communication on Earth's day-side.

Surface area is 14x the surface area of the Earth. ED80 refractor with Baader film solar filter, imaged with dSLR. https://www.broughastronomy.co.uk/apps/photos/photo?photoID=196085068 196085068 Milky Way Taken on the NY Moors near to Danby Beacon. You can see that my expectation of minimal light pollution at this *high*point were not met - rookie error! https://www.broughastronomy.co.uk/apps/photos/photo?photoID=196085154 196085154 Plough / Shed A simple starscape showing the Plough above a neighbour's shed. Taken with a Canon 7D and a focal length of 17mm. f/8, ISO 640 and a 22 Sec exposure. Just for fun! https://www.broughastronomy.co.uk/apps/photos/photo?photoID=196527489 196527489 The Constellation Andromeda Andromeda, Cassiopeia, and the Square of Pegasus, taken from a friend's back garden in Bilton, so a *bit* less light pollution than my city-centre one. Canon 7D, focal length 10mm (16mm equivalent for a 35mm camera) f/4, ISO 2000 and a four second exposure. https://www.broughastronomy.co.uk/apps/photos/photo?photoID=196527490 196527490 Andromeda, I see you! M31 pictured through some haze and city-lit background - just to see if it would be clear :-) Canon 7D, focal length 10mm (16mm equivalent for a 35mm camera) f/4, ISO 2000 and a 46 second exposure this time. Any longer and the clouds took over completely! https://www.broughastronomy.co.uk/apps/photos/photo?photoID=196527491 196527491 Comet Lovejoy Back garden search for comet Lovejoy. This mage shows Orion on the left, and the Pleiades just above comet Lovejoy (C/2014 Q2) https://www.broughastronomy.co.uk/apps/photos/photo?photoID=197145264 197145264 Solar Eclipse The sun made a few appearances during the partial eclipse (March 2015), but the clouds provided a natural filter and a dramatic frame. Taken outside the dome at Brough. https://www.broughastronomy.co.uk/apps/photos/photo?photoID=197846185 197846185 Whirlpool Galaxy, M51 About 23 million light years distant. AKA NGC 5194. The smaller one upper-right is NGC 5195. Skywatcher 80ED with Canon 5Diii attached, captured just as dawn approached in June 2015. https://www.broughastronomy.co.uk/apps/photos/photo?photoID=198886836 198886836 Ring Nebula, M57 M57 (aka NGC 6720) is a planetary nebula: a shell of ionised gasses blown out from a red giant star in it's final stages before collapsing to be a white dwarf. Skywatcher 80ED with Canon 7D attached, captured from my back garden about a mile from Hull city center (yes, yes, I know... mad, really!) in June 2015. https://www.broughastronomy.co.uk/apps/photos/photo?photoID=198886837 198886837
