Norwood Lane time lapse

Last Wednesday I went out with our local cycling club "Wheel Easy" and part of the ride took us up Norwood Lane which was a long gradual climb but was well worth it for the open space and panoramic views at the top. So, on Friday afternoon I headed out with all my camera gear, thermal clot...

Night sky time lapse at wind farm

On Friday March 25th I cycled up to Knabs Ridge wind farm on my ICE Adventure HD recumbent trike and Benpacker trailer (now my mode of transport for l my overnight time lase shoots) to shoot a night sky time lapse using the wind turbines as a foreground focal point. It is a long uphill drag all the ...

Comet C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE) + NLCs extra footage

I heard that comet C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE) was starting to fade so as the skies were forecast for clear last night I decided to have another crack at it while I can. I went to the same field as last week and shot a few time lapse clips of which I have selected a few stills as well. I was hoping for some...

Comet C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE) + NLCs

Hi all I've managed to process the time lapse data that I shot of Comet C/2020 F3 (NEOWISE) last night in the field above Nidd Gorge close by where I live. I managed to get some Noctilucent Clouds (NLCs) as well which was nice. The only downside is that a small insect decided to land on my lens duri...

Moving to a new website for my astro-images

Hi For those that have been interested in my astroimages and time lapse videos, I had a website called "Imaging the heavens" Unfortunately the hosting site has announced that they are "pulling the plug" on June 30th and will no longer be hosting any websites so I've been having a...

A decade of astrophotography

I have been working on a project for a while to try and link all my astrophotography together. I have now been taking pictures of the night sky in one way or another for the last 14 years. I started off taking pictures of deep sky objects (galaxies, nebulae and star clusters) with specialist cooled ...

Ribblehead Viaduct Nightscapes

Last night I went back to one of favourite haunts to shoot some time lapse, star trails, animated star rails and some nightscapes. It sounds like a lot but all of these are done from the same data. I got to Ribblehead station at about 2:30pm which left me plenty of time to have a cup of coffee at th...

Time lapse at Swinsty Reservoir

I spent last night at Swinsty Reservoir, about 10 miles from where I live shooting some time lapse and animated star trails. Although the weather forecast was for clear skies for the whole night the sky was very milky towards the horizon and despite no moon the sky didn't appear that dark (probably ...

3 years of time lapsing!

Next month, the Herefordshire Astronomical Society is holding a public open day to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing. I have been invited to do a couple of talks on astrophotography and time lapse imaging. As part of the time lapse talk I have put together a video of my time...

Time Lapse and Star Trails on the Yorkshire Coast

Last week I went to a place called Thornwick Bay in Flamborough on the East Yorkshire Coast to shoot some time lapse and star trails. It wasn't the perfect night for it although the sky was clear as the moon was quite bright and high in the sky for the whole night. I set up two cameras, my Sony A7Si...
