Winner of Astronomy photographer of the year 2019 People & Space

Floyd and myself atop a little hill silhouetted against a star filled sky. Mars, Saturn, Altaire, Vega & Deneb alongside the Galactic Core of our Milky Way Galaxy.



My award-winning image from Astro Photographer of the Year 2019. This single 10 second exposure shows me and one of my dogs, Floyd with Mars to the left and Saturn to the right. Also, on the right you can the Galactic Core of our Milky Way Galaxy, the gas cloud at the very centre where 26,000 light years away lies the Super Massive Black Hole Sagittarius A*. Either side of this you can see Libra, Scorpius and over the core the constellation of Sagittarius. In the sky the Summer Triangle of Altaire, Deneb and Vega is also visible. One of my favourite shots and one that has been on show in the National Maritime Museum Greenwich, published in the Astro Photographer of the Year book and toured around the country with the exhibition. Also, has recently been on sale in the Maritime Museum
