Beautiful art photography of the moon and deep space taken from the backyard.

The astronomer of Devonport Astrophotography (moonphotos) has been taking photos of the moon and deep space since acquiring his first telescope several years ago. Already a keen hobby photographer, and a computer professional by trade, it was a short leap from astronomy to astrophotography.

The telescope currently being used is an Orion Atlas 10 EQ-G with GSO coma corrector and IDAS LPS-P2 filter and the camera is a Pentax K10D.

Most photographs we sell are taken in Auckland, New Zealand, but we take every opportunity available to take advantage of dark skies in other locations.
