    Setting up to capture the ancient light of the Universe.

    A quick photo of my widefield Astrophotography gear, while I was setting up for a long weekend of Astrophotography at the annual Kambro Star Party (Northern Cape, South Africa).

    When we photograph the Universe, Telescopes are like time machines that look back into the distant past. It allows one to capture the very distant faint light of Nebulae, Galaxies and Stars that took thousands, millions, and even billions of years to reach us.

    “The size and age of the Cosmos are beyond ordinary human understanding. Lost somewhere between immensity and eternity is our tiny planetary home." - Carl Sagan.

      Gerda van Schalkwyk Ja, hy het maar net die gawe gehad om goed op 'n manier te sê wat impak maak.

      Great setup Martin. How do you attach Red Dot Finder onto the Cameras Hotshoe? Can you provide a link where you bought the gadget from or maybe you made it yourself?

      Mark Sansom You can modify one, but I got mine online at ScopeStuff. Very handy indeed.
