Night Sky in Focus aims to provide useful information on astrophotography-related topics, visual observations, and equipment modification for fellow astronomy and science enthusiasts. In this site you will find articles on upcoming astronomical events, planned astronomical observations, DIY projects, and guides on how to get started with astrophotography. Other astronomy-related topics I am interested in (such as satellite communications) are also posted in this website.

Astronomical Images

This site features photos within reach of a 4-inch, 900 mm f/9 refracting telescope. Planets, galaxies, nebula, star clusters, the Sun, and the moon are the usual targets as they are visible in most parts of the year. On rare instances, artificial satellites orbiting the Earth, occasional comet appearances, asteroids’ closest approach, and recently-discovered supernova are photographed. Eclipses and other astronomical phenomena are also documented whenever possible.

Other Related Topics

After recently passing the exam for Class C amateur radio license, I have engaged in another astronomy-related hobby — satellite communications — particularly, with the International Space Station (ISS). Getting involved with amateur radio is also a good way to get started with radio astronomy (perhaps one day I will explore that field).
