Hi,

 

Not sure if it's the right place to post it, sorry if it's not.

 

 

I'm looking for good YouTube channels about astronomy and astrophotography, but mostly astrophotography.

 

Here is what I am subscribed to so far:

Hi,

 

Not sure if it's the right place to post it, sorry if it's not.

 

I'm looking for good YouTube channels about astronomy and astrophotography, but mostly astrophotography.

 

Here is what I am subscribed to so far:  ...<snip>...

 

 

For general astronomy, I like Dr. Becky. Her YouTube channel:

As an introduction to her, I recommend these videos from her channel:

 

Stargazing in the Maldives | The INCREDIBLE centre of the Milky Way from Soneva Jani

https://www.youtube....h?v=GjoBnvT9G-c

 

A day in the life of an Astrophysicist at Oxford University
Nov 27, 2019

https://www.youtube....h?v=XW_qIqLhPkI

 

Her personal website: https://rebeccasmethurst.co.uk/

Her page at the University of Oxford: https://www.physics....eople/smethurst

 

 

From Wikipedia:

 

Rebecca Smethurst is a British astrophysicist, author, and YouTuber who is a Junior Research Fellow at the University of Oxford. She was the recipient of the 2020 Caroline Herschel Prize Lectureship awarded by the Royal Astronomical Society as well as the 2020 Mary Somerville Medal and Prize awarded by the Institute of Physics. As a researcher, Smethurst studies the role that supermassive black holes play in inhibiting different types of galaxies from forming stars. She is a member of the Galaxy Zoo collaboration run by her doctoral advisor Chris Lintott. Smethurst hosts her own YouTube channel called Dr. Becky where she posts science communication videos related to astronomy research and amateur astronomy.

https://en.wikipedia...Becky_Smethurst

 

From the BBC (with video at the link):

 

Dr Becky: The Oxford University YouTube astrophysicist

Journalists: Adam Paylor and Emily Ford

Published15 August 2019 | BBC News 

 

Among the millions of channels on YouTube is 'Dr Becky', an astrophysicist who is trying to encourage others into STEM careers (science, technology, engineering and mathematics). As a research fellow at the University of Oxford, Dr Becky Smethurst specialises in black holes, but outside the day job she posts videos on all sorts of space-themed questions. Her aim is to be someone in the world of scientific research that people can have a connection with.

Thanks BFaucett, I have added Dr. Becky to my YouTube list. Seems like a fun, slightly different approach.

 

And I've added the Maldives to my vacation destination list.  Yea...right.

To the OP, some of the websites in your list are almost pure promotional and do not teach you about astrophotography almost at all.

Why would they all need to be educational?

They don't. That is not the point. The point is that promotional website are biased and usually give the wrong impression to beginners of what the hobby is about.
