    Supermoon August 10th

    I didn’t get out with the camera in time to see the Supermoon rise on August 10th (once source quoted 10:48 as being the moon rise time) . By the time I released it was earlier I decided to wait until the moon was thigh enough in the sky to get a clear shot at […]

  • SuperMoon Shot with New 70-300 Lens

    SuperMoon Shot with New 70-300 Lens

    My Canon 70-300 lens got a battering over the past few years (I had it over 6 years) so I invested in a brand new 70-300. The latest version of this zoom lens has IS and 2 auto-focus modes. The zoom is incredible and I have taken some great shots of aircraft at 36,000ft, on […]

  • First Astrophotography Timelapse

    First Astrophotography Timelapse

    I had seen timelapse videos showing the stars in the night sky moving, showing the rotation of the earth, sometimes even showing the milky way as it traverses the night sky. Having done some research I found out that you need a digital shutter timer or intervalometer. I found one on Amazon for under €30 […]

The Perseids is a prolific meteor shower associated with the fragments from comet Swift-Tuttle and are called “The Perseids” because the point from which they originate, lies in the constellation of Perseus. Having checked the StarWalk app on the iPhone it seemed that […]

    Montreal, Evening Street Scene

    I thought I had finished posting photos of Canada when I found this one. I thought that the photo had potential so after a bit of editing I ended up with a version I was happy with. The shot itself was one which I took while walking past this area. Set the camera up on […]

    Making the Most of the Blue Hour in Waterford

    Tonight I decided to put the camera in the car and drive around and see what presented itself. Around 9pm the darkness was starting to become apparent and I chanced checking what time the International Space Station would be heading over Waterford. Thanks to the Twisst service on Twitter 21:10pm was listed and I made […]

    Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto, Canada – 28/Project 52

    I haven’t been updating the project52 recently as I was away in Canada and during the trip took a few snaps which will appear here on the blog and also on the Flickr Stream. Delighted to have some good weather to take photos, the typical Irish man in me would comment that it was a […]

    Moonshot – 9/Project 52
