We are proud members of the Hampshire Astronomical Group where we do most of our imaging work. Some of the time we use our own telescopes from our gardens, some of the images from these are added to this site.

This is the very first image we took, yes this is what started our collection back in 2004. We used Phil's SCT 8 inch Telescope and the Phillips To U Cam Pro 840 in Phil's back garden.

We were so pleased to get our first image that it's encouraged us to continue in our great new hobby Astro Imaging. We even left the dust mark (top left) on the image, so what you see is the original image.
