Each month members of the Norman Lockyer Observatory are actively imaging our galaxy, the solar system and deep space.
We meet regularly at the observatory every Friday evening, where we have talks presentations and of course imaging (weather permitting).
If you are interested in imaging or want to learn more please feel free to come along and we will endeavour to help you any way we can. Please see the link to our forum bottom of this paragraph; here you will see the images we have been taking.
Norman Lockyer was himself an astrophotographer producing thousands of glass plate images, both of spectra and deep space objects.
The wealth of experience the members have range from pure beginner to advanced having gone through the pure beginner stage and progressing.
Astro Imaging is the modern term for Astrophotography using the latest digital equipment, rather than the traditional camera and film method, which is still practiced today.
We all started from using a basic web cam & progressing forward!
