I have created this site to show what can be achieved with camera & film from the heart of a light-polluted city in good 'ole cloudy England! In this case the city is Oxford - home of the 'Dreaming Spires.'
Please click on the thumbnail to see a larger sized image of the Deep Sky object. The images have been kept to a modest size in the hope that they will download quicker (the smaller size also serves to show up less "gaffs" in the image than would otherwise be noticeable!!). There is also a brief description of each object, its visual appearance through my telescope as seen from the city and details of the equipment used to take the photo.
In my view, the images look better on the monitor when viewed in a darkened room at night (however I may just be weird!).
Do feel free to sign my guestbook (see bottom of page) after viewing.
