Welcome to the
Astro Kerikeri Observatory website. 

My interest is in photographing Deep Space Objects (DSO). The new technology in telescopes, mounts and cameras now allows the amateur astronomer, like myself, to "see", through the medium of a photograph, objects invisible to the human eye such as dim stars, nebulae, and galaxies. It does this by using modern digital cameras that can accumulate the light from these objects over long periods of time using long exposures. We can now view the wonders of our universe as never before.

I plan to use this website to display examples of images that I have taken from my backyard observatory. It is my hope that this website can provide visitors with some aesthetic pleasure and to maybe extend their knowledge of our wonderful universe. I welcome feedback and am happy to share any information I have learned in the short time I have been engaging in this hobby of astrophotography.
