Jim Ratter's Photos


                                    Jim's Astrophotos

Jim Ratter is from Delting in the North Mainland of Shetland. He started experimenting with a Finepix S5600 digital camera in May 2017. Some of his astro images are posted below.

Ursa Major 02.05.2017   Conditions were not ideal.

Ursa Major 02.05.2017  Conditions were not ideal, because the brightness of the night sky is increasing, making it difficult    to effectively capture details with this camera. Image shows what is possible with a standard digitalcamera, however.      When nights start to get darker, results will improve. We hope to see this in pictures from the coming Autumn.
