Solar eclipse '99

In my further attempts to use the blog to publish everything website wise, here are my old photos of the 1999 UK solar eclipse from Smirnov's Domain.

Transit of Venus 2004

As I don't seem to have any of my images of the transit of Venus on the web, I thought the blog would be as good a place as any to post them. I'm also planning on publishing more of my astrophotography stuff at some point in the future. Most of it needs scanning and my old log book needs modernising and being tied up with the images so it probably won't be for a few weeks.

The equipment I used to take the photographs. Two chairs I stole from the conservatory and living room, the old laptop with a webcam, a cardboard box with some white paper in the bottom and my TAL 2M Newtonian reflector.
