How to take good astrophotography photos: Go to Kerry International Dark Sky Reserve Wander outside at night and take a photo with your camera.

Before these get lost in the ether (again!) I want to put them on my blog. Some years back a few of us put together some observing challenge booklets for the Irish Federation of Astronomical Societies. I don’t think the certificates are still being offered but they are a great resource if you are stuck
