Liverpool, United Kingdom Telescope: 14-inch Newtonian Reflector
“I have been interested in astronomy since I was seven years old, inspired by the first spaceflights and, of course, the Apollo program. Later on I became interested in photography, so it was natural to take up astrophotography.
"I enjoy imaging many kinds of targets, from deep-sky objects to Solar System bodies - I also dabble with spectroscopy. My favourite objects are galaxies and galaxy clusters; it’s incredible to think of the number of planets there must be in one image, possibly harbouring life. Imaging from my light-polluted location has its challenges, but with the help of CCD cameras some great results can be achieved.”
