Welcome to the wonderful world of Astronomy in Kinson
A fascinating object to observe with the naked eye or through binoculars.
|It goes through phases each month and is always a|
pleasure to observe.
Close-up photograph of the Moon
|This close up was taken using a 200mm scope.|
Another Moon close-up photograph
|Notice the many craters it has.|
Jupiter in close up
|None of its four main Galilean moons are featured
in this back garden photograph.
It is always a pleasure to observe Venus when these opportunities arise.
|A real gem in the night sky. It fascinates everyone who first focus upon it, including the
local brownies of the Kinson district.
It is probably, one of the most beautiful objects
in the night sky.
When fully opened, its rings are truly magnificent.
|This small photograph depicts a recent photograph
of the Sun as it was setting.
Never look at the sun directly as its damaging
power is awesome. It is best to project the
Sun through a telescope and then to photograph it safely using proper equipment.
So please, do take extreme care when looking at or
when considering photographing the Sun.
An idea for a website logo
|We were looking at an early phase of the Moon and the logo for the Moonfleet of Kinson website came into being.|
