My name is David Nash and this is my web page. Here you will find the results of my "adventures in astrophotography". I use webcams and dedicated astronomy CCD cameras, as well as film and digital SLR cameras and a variety of telescopes.
I live in Cambridgeshire in England in a small village fairly close to average size towns, but where the sky is dark enough to have a good view and make astronomy worthwhile.
I hope you enjoy looking at my pictures!
On 14 November (local time) the new moon's shadow passed across the face of the Earth, and a total solar eclipse was visible from parts of Australia and the south Pacific.
I was in Cairns to see the eclipse and captured some images from a boat on the Great Barrier Reef.

Wide-field picture of Comet 2004/Q2 Machholz near the Pleiades and the California nebula on my Miscellaneous page.
Comets! Comet 78P/Gehrels imaged on the 14 November, 2004 as it passed through Aries and Taurus, and Comet 2004/Q2 Machholz imaged on 17 December in Eridanus. Notice that the stars have trails, showing that the comets are moving relative to them for the duration of the exposures captured.
