Astronomy compels the soul to look upwards and leads us from this world to another – Plato.

Who am I?

My name is Antony, I live in the UK and work as a Graphic / Web Designer.

Why am I here?

I’ve always had a passion for Astronomy, when I was younger I would use my brothers 4inch refractor to look at the night sky. Only recently have I begun to look at my fairly casual interest as a real hobby, building up my collection of equipment and experience and thought it would be nice to document my experience and the wonders that I see using photography and a diary.

The inspiration for this blog came while researching which scope would be best for the budget I had, thats when I found a great review and the Martian Sunset Blog. I thought if I’m going to document my experiences, why not share it with others via my own blog, and here we are.

The Future

I’m hoping over time to build up my equipment and experience as an amateur astronomer.


Hope you enjoy my blog.
