I have been a keen astronomer since 2006 my parents bought me my telescope for Christmas. Since then I have bought several other telescopes, completed university courses and even created my own website where I share even more writings and my astrophotos.

Tue 25th Oct 2022 - On October 25th, 2022, we saw a partial solar eclipse. It was visible over most of Europe, north Africa, the Middle East and parts of Asia.

Sat 20th Nov 2021 - After a very long time away from my scopes, my interest in astronomy and astrophotography has been reignited by a trip to Loch Leven watching shooting stars, satellites and just enjoying the night sky.
Tue 29th Sep 2015 - A supermoon total lunar eclipse took place between September 27 and 28, 2015. It was seen in the early hours of Monday morning, September 28.
Sat 21st Feb 2015 - It's been a while since I've been out under the stars, but tonight I took out my camera and photographed some of the stars and the moon from my own dark sky area for Moffat Astronomy.
Tue 10th Dec 2013 - Last night I literally dusted off my 200mm (8") Newtonian reflector and set about imaging some more of the winter nights sky.
Fri 6th Dec 2013 - It's been a long time since I have done any night sky viewing, according to my last post on this website it was back in 2010! Well, now I have been out every clear night for the past month (only two nights!) with some new equipment and taken some amazing new photos.
Tue 19th Nov 2013 - Tonight I took out my small telescope and camera and took a few pictures of the Moon and also used a camera lens with the same focal length for comparison.
Sat 14th Aug 2010 - With the annual Perseid meteor shower at its peak, I set up the camera under clear skies to try again at photographing a meteor. After a number of years trying I finally managed to get one on digital film!
