I’ve submitted a portfolio of my work to the British Journal of Photography for the Nikon Project Assistance Awards.
So why am I entering? Well, if I win an award, I would purchase a second colour CCD camera and computer to be mounted on a long focal length telescope to get a high resolution, narrower field of view image.
Placing the two images side by side would give a widefield view of an object, with a ‘zoomed in’ section of the same object next to it. For example, we could have a widefield image of the Horsehead nebula region in one frame, and in the accompanying frame a close-up of just the Horsehead itself.
There is tough competition!
