The intermittently interesting, occasionally dull blog of not very well known SF writer Alastair Reynolds
Tuesday, 15 May 2012
My adventures in astrophotography have been hampered by poor weather and (to be fair) a measure of lethargy on the part of your correspondent. But tonight some clear skies heralded this first attempt at capturing Saturn, low in the south but still rather lovely through a telescope. I took this at about 11 pm local time. It's still cold here - indeed, we don't really get warm evenings in Wales any more.
OK, it's not going to make the cover of Sky & Telescope, but it's another step and I'm pleased with it.
I'm a little behind on emails and bookplates, by the way, but catching up slowly. Bear with me, as there's been a lot of travel these last couple of months, as well as two novels that need finishing.
