Awesome blog...

I'd like to do astrophotography but I'm not sure where to start.

Callum, you will need at least a telescope and a camera.
Perhaps the easiest start is planetary photography because you just need a (good) webcam or a planetary imager (about 100 US$) and a telescope that doesen't need to have equatorial mount and tracking. It may be alt-az or dobsonian.
Browse my site for more information or email me.
