A place to share my Astrophotography journey, including images taken from my bortle 6 backyard here in rural Leicestershire.

About Me

My name is Stewart, I am 59 years young and have been imaging on and off for approx 15 years. That’s me on the left with my latest imaging set up. It’s only really the last few years that I have taken the hobby seriously, and wanted to move forward with more professional kit and make strides into producing some images that I can be proud of. I live in rural Leicestershire and have a back garden self-built observatory, that I call the AstroShed. My sky is pretty average for the UK at bortle 6. I don’t have the best views from my AstroShed due to being situated in the middle of a small housing estate but it's much better than many people have, so I am grateful.

I have changed much of my imaging kit for the 2023/24 season with a new mount, main imaging scope and guidescope, guide camera and also a QHY268 Mono imaging camera and filters, these are all listed with full details on the Equipment and Accessories pages. Please feel free to browse this site, read the blog, linked below, and any comments or questions you may have, please don’t hesitate to contact me via the Contact page.

All of these images and those throughout my site were taken by myself, with the equipment and software shown under the equipment, accessories & software tabs (click images to enlarge).
