Conservatory Observatory

Moon

So last night I was sat in the conservatory reading a book (Sams Teach Yourself Visual Basic 2010 in 24 Hours in case you were wondering – and yes, I can be that dull) when I noticed the moon was out. It was quite a clear sky which has been something a rarity of late. The weather forecast from a few weeks ago suggesed the jet stream was sitting lower than usual and we’ve been battered by a conveyor belt of dense cloud and rain ever since.

Anyway, I took the photo opportunity like any good photographer would and I was pleasantly surprised with the result. Believe it or not, I didn’t even step outside to take the above picture. In my next post I’ll tell you what equipment I used. For those who have done this before, you won’t learn anything new, but if you’re a beginner you might not have considered pointing your DSLR into the night sky before. It’s easier than you might think.
