WELCOME TO THE APRIL 2020 issue of Digital SLR Photography. It’s been a crazy month in terms of the weather, with persistent rainfall flooding wide areas of the country and no end in sight. Unpredictable weather conditions are always to be expected in spring, but this year has been as erratic as I can remember. In the space of a couple of hours I witnessed a sunny day transform into one ransacked by a prolonged hailstorm, then the sun re-emerged brightly and briefly before being replaced by hours of snowfall!

Exposure: 1/4sec at f/13 (ISO 100). Moy Castle by Andrew Ray www.andrewrayphotography.com “This image captures Moy Castle at the head of Loch Buie on the Isle of Mull, with the peak of Ben Buie in the distance.

PLANETS, STARS, GALAXIES and nebulae are easier to photograph than you might think. Exploring the mysteries of the universe used to be reserved for dedicated astronomers and giant telescopes, but not anymore. With the right advice and approach, you can capture beautiful star-studded images with a DSLR and even a telescope and smartphone.
