Introduction

Many amateur astronomers, at some point, want to take their hobby further

than hearing talks, reading books and occasionally visiting the observatory.

Several of our members undertake programmes of observation and usually

photograph objects from a telescope.  Recent huge advances in digital

photography make it possible to get quite stunning images using modest

equipment.
To the left is only a small sample of the images our members have

taken with Solent Amateur Astronomy Society's equipment
