My Sky

We’re looking for images you’ve taken of your sky—whether those images are of galaxies captured through a telescope or perhaps pictures of an incredible night sky, an eclipse, a star party, or a rocket launch. We can’t guarantee that we’ll publish every image and story—but we will look at each and every one and will showcase as many as possible here on our website and a few might make it to our magazine, The Planetary Report. We look forward to seeing your Sky.

Currently, I am pursuing studies in astrophysics but a career in politics. I would like to further human knowledge and keep our place in ... more »

My humble story

by Mike Doyle

January 6, 2017

I have been interested in various aspects of the universe and space exploration since a very young age with Sci-Fi movies, Horizon and Cosmos and Sky at Night documentaries.

Then I later got a 70mm dia refractor with longer focal length about 2.5 years ago and started taking pics using iPhone. Love that scope, cheapish but optics are quite good. Still have it now but it's only real failing is its relatively poor azimuth mount. I got ... more »
