This site presents some of the deep-sky astronomical images that have been taken by Stephen Chadwick from Himatangi Beach in New Zealand. Stephen has been photographing the Southern night sky for over 10 years. His photographs have appeared in newspapers and on TV around the world. 

He has also written a book, "Imaging the Southern Sky", which is dedicated to astronomical photography in the Southern Hemisphere. It includes a foreword from the late Sir Patrick Moore:

"It is often said that the southern skies are richer and more interesting than those of the north. Yet there are not many books devoted mainly to them, and Stephen Chadwick and Ian Cooper’s is a welcome edition. I am sure you will find it useful and enjoyable."                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Sir Patrick Moore
