    Default G'day



    G'day from the Hunter Valley in NSW, Australia, home to lots of vineyards and coal mines.

    My interest is in Nightscapes and photographing various Nebula with, at this stage, my existing camera gear. I have a Nikon D7200 and various lens from a Samyang 14mm f2.8 up to a Nikon 300mm f4. I've just finished putting together a tracking/guiding set-up with an HEQ5
    Pro, WO guide scope and a ZWO ASI 120MM linked to a lap-top. Looking forward to sharing ideas and images and learning more about my new passion.
