Hi all..

Hi all I am Jilly, 45, and just getting into photography and especially night sky scenes, took a couple of which I am pleased with, posted my first moon pic on here, not half as good as the ones I have already looked at on here, but hoping to get some nice crisp clear nights where I can get some good photos of star Constellations, well that's a little bit about me.

Hi Jilly and welcome.
If you have a camera that'll take up to 10 second exposures and a tripod you can get really good results if the skies are dark. Good luck!

HI both Gfamily2, yes I have a camera its a Panasonic, Lumix FZ82, and got some great results up-to now of what I call normal photos, just getting used to all the settings and such it has, fab camera and touch screen as well which makes it much easier to use.
