Welcome to the Lineside Observatory

After being an "armchair astronomer" for a number of years I have finally obtained a telescope and camera and managed to venture out "under the sky".

I have recently built an observatory which certainly makes observing and imaging much more convenient and  comfortable.

On the site you will find images of Saturn, Mars the Moon and the Sun.

The Sun is very dangerous.

Never look at the Sun directly or through any optical equipment (for example telescopes, binoculars and camera viewfinders) that is not specially made for solar work otherwise serious eye damage or even blindness will result.

The images on this site were taken with equipment specially made for solar use.

Also included are some links to other astronomy sites.
