Dave's Astrophotography has moved!

I have decided to have a dedicated site just for all my astrophotography ramblings and detach it from this current blog. So going forward there will be no more content appearing on, and the redirect that used to occur on the astro domain back to this site has been turned off and now point to the new dedicated site. Still playing around with the layout, but good enough for now! Glad it is done now though as I had to manually download all the images and copy paste all the narrative across and rewrite all the blog articles! The new home can be found at: We will see how things go from here. Thanks, Dave
