Amateur Astronomy and Imaging.


Within this section of the website you will find reviews I have written for the various pieces of astronomy related hardware and software I have used. Some of these reviews were originally written for publication on the Cloudy Nights website.

Given the high cost of quality optical equipment I normally spend weeks or even months reading the reviews of others before committing to buy anything. Over the years I have found them to be an invaluable resource to help guide me in the right direction and prevent me from making expensive mistakes. I hope my own reviews can also help others in the same way.

I should point out that I am in no way affiliated to any of the companies which produce the items I review. While I will try and remain as objective as possible, the opinions expressed are my own and based on my experiences. If you have any comments regarding these reviews please contact me at
