List of observing equipment
Dutch version

This page describes the equipment I use to photograph. You will notice this is no special equipment at all. Most home photographers will own similar equipment. Making good photographs does not expect expensive equipment but much more the way you use your equipment.
Main aspects by far to obtain good photographs are composition and exposure. This you can do by yourself almost completely. Where is the main subject located and where is the horizon? Is the picture taken with the sun at your back or into the light? When is the best time to make good photo's? Mostly this is at sunrise.
