Amateur Astronomy and Imaging.


Here you will find details of the various projects I have undertaken related to astronomy. This includes any software programs, hardware designs and imaging techniques I have either developed myself or worked on with the advice and guidance of fellow amateur astronomers.

Canon 350D modification

For me, one of the most enjoyable aspects of amateur astronomy is the ability to gradually improve my technique and adapt the equipment through trial and error. In some cases it can be far more fruitful to spend several nights analysing a problem to determine the underlying cause than simply spending money to replace bits of hardware or software. If by sharing this information I can help out other astronomers in the process then I feel that justifies my time and effort developing this website.

I don't consider myself an expert in any of the areas discussed in this section, but if you would like additional information about any of these projects then please contact me at
