In The Beginning.
Man has walked upright on planet Earth For some 6000 years or so. Staring up at the Heavens in awe and wonderment. Yet it is only recently that we are starting to scratch the surface and begin to understand how the Universe began and take a closer look at stellar events millions of light years away.
Galileo gave us our first look at the Telescope. He mapped out the solar system.. He discovered Moons around Jupiter and The phases of Venus. Great men like Copernicus died for the science of Astronomy. Greater men have lived and died trying to reach the Moon.
Man has strived to get a greater understanding of the Universe. We are getting closer as advancements in our technology improve. We have Gamma ray , Ultraviolet and radio wave telescopes on Manmade Satellites in Space. One Satellite, Voyager 1, has gone beyond the reaches of our own Star, the Sun, and gone into interstellar Space.
For as long as I can remember.
I have loved staring up at the heavens.
I started getting into Amateur astronomy about 3 years ago. Thanks to Professor Brian Cox and Professor Stephen Hawkin.
They rekindled my appetite for Astronomy.
I already knew a little bit about the Stars and our Solar system. I wanted to take a closer look.
First I bought a second-hand pair of Binoculars for about £20 and I was amazed at all the things I could see. Pleiades, Andromeda, Orion’s Nebula, Star clusters and planets. It was one of my best Stargazing moments when I first saw The Andromeda Galaxy.
I just had to get a Telescope!
But which one?
My budget was very limited so I looked on eBay and after some research on the astronomy forums opted for a
Sky-Watcher-Skyhawk-1145P-SynScan-AZ goto Telescope.
Second hand £150.
My First Telescope : Sky watcher 1145p synscan
My first ever image: The moon and Crator Tycho:
I took this image of Crator Tycho using nothing more than my IPhone 6 through the Eyepiece of my 4 inch Skywatcher Telescope.
It Just goes to prove that You don’t need a lot of ultra expensive equipment, top of range Telescopes or ultimate digital Cameras to start making your own fantastic pictures.
Once you start to take pictures of the Cosmos it completes the whole experience of Stargazing and give everyone a chance to see Your pictorial results all bound together in your very own portfolio.
