Hi, my name is Dave Sexton. My usual photographic interest is very long exposure astronomical imaging using specialist cooled CCDs and an astrograph. Out of sheer frustration (not many decent evenings for astrophotography in the UK!) I decided to get into landscape photography, and here I am. I must say, its a nice change to be making images in the daylight for a change!

Vic,

I have not maintained my website for two years (!!). However, you can see some of my images here.

I have to say that astronomical photography is interesting, but it is a little too tricky at times! Tracking and focus are particular issues. I am taking a break form it at the moment to photograph things a little closer to home

Regards,

Dave
