Welcome to Malcolm Porter’s Astronomy Website

Dear Viewer

Although this website remains primarily for astro related images, given my general interest in photography, you will find a ‘Non-Astro Gallery’ menu item which if you click you will find, hopefully, a relatively small selection of my, maybe, better images that I have taken over the years, including some non-astro images taken on my trip to see the US Total Solar Eclipse of 2017.

Please note, if using some versions of Internet Explorer the facility to expand specific images by clicking the left hand  mouse button whilst hovering over the small image, may no longer work, in which case please right click whilst hovering over the small image, and then click on ‘Open Link’. If using Chrome a single left hand mouse button click, whilst hovering over the small image, will expand the image as required. Also, if there is no embedded description, dragging the cursor down from near the top of the image will produce a description across the bottom of the screen. 

You will also find my video of the 2017 Eclipse by going to YouTube and entering ‘malcolm porter eclipse 2017’

Although I have no responsibility for the content of any other website you will find many excellent astro images on the Flamsteed Astronomy Society website at


and then by clicking on the  ‘Image Gallery’ button.

Please note – Errors and omissions excepted.
