    My host was prompt and eager to teach, I could tell right away that they were passionate about their craft. I learnt a lot in just a few short hours and even managed to capture a few images that I was very pleased with. All in all I'm very please with the class and host, both of which I would highly recommend

    Title or Location: My back garden in Hemel Hempstead
    As a deep space photographer, I like to take photos of outer space targets that our eyes cannot see. These photos require a lot of patience and a lot of clear nights reason why my telescopes are working almost every night when it isn't cloudy. Astrophotography is very different from all the other types of photography, a single photo sometimes requires tens of hours under the clear night sky but the result is very satisfying.In this photo, I would like to present to you the California Nebula
