WELCOME TO THE OCTOBER 2018 issue of Digital SLR Photography. Having heard that the planet Mars is closer to the Earth than it has been for years, I spent many late evenings last month in the garden, sipping a beer and gazing up at the bright red orb slowly moving across the night sky. I’ve always been fascinated by outer space and hope in the near future to find the time (and funds) to try my hand at astrophotography.

I would regret not going there! In the end, everything went as planned and I managed to capture those incredible waves crashing on the rocks just in front of the little town.” Nikon D800 with Nikon AF-S 24-120mm f/4 lens.
