A selection of images mostly taken at La Société Guernesiaise Astronomy Section's Observatory in Guernsey.

All were taken by Daniel Cave unless otherwise stated.

Many were taken using a Starlight Xpress CCD camera on a Celestron C-14 telescope working at f/7.5. Others were taken with an SBIG ST-7XME CCD camera on a Celestron C-11, an 8-inch Celestron Schmidt camera, a Meade 16-inch telescope, or piggyback.
