About Me

Welcome to Astroimagery.com!

Karl Perera

I’m Karl, and I love to help those fascinated by the amazing world of astrophotography to get started or improve the quality of their images.

Are you a complete beginner looking to take your first astro images, but are overwhelmed and don’t know how to get started? Or perhaps you’re someone who has taken a few astrophotos and you want to learn how to improve? Perhaps you can already take good space photos but you’re looking to move to the next level?

If any of the above describes you, then my friend, you’ve come to the right place!

I’ve had a keen interest in astronomy since watching the Apollo landings as a kid and had a telescope when I was a teenager. Now I am an astrophotographer with several years of experience behind me. This is now becoming a business as I start to earn an income from selling my astrophotography art and the equipment that you’ll need for astrophotography.

I’ve learned the lessons the hard way!

Since I’ve been doing astrophotography I’ve learned what works and what doesn’t. I’ve experienced how much time can be wasted setting up my astrophotography equipment.

I’ve found my own ways of doing things more quickly so that I can spend more time imaging rather than setting up.

I’ve also learned what elements of the whole astrophotography process can speed up the path to successful images that amaze like this one created by merging images in Photoshop! Efficiency and focus are the key.

Stress-free Astrophotography

The complexity of astronomy and photography can cause a lot of stress and mistakes can ruin the enjoyment of a night under the stars. I love astrophotography so much and it saddens me when I see or hear that others are struggling! I want to reach out to you and offer my help. Astroimagery.com is my way of doing this.

  • to experience the joys of astrophotography stress-free.
  • If you want to stop feeling overwhelmed by the amount to learn in astro imaging.
