It's been a while since my last post here, there's a lot to catch up on. I've got back into astronomy after a break of many years, so this post shows you a few pictures I've taken through a telescope in the past few months. It's a Skywatcher dobsonian 200mm reflector, the photos are taken with a DSLR camera in prime focus, which means effectively using the telescope as a huge camera lens. You have to take quite a few photos and then combine them using a computer to produce good images. Here's my best so far:
