My next hands-on workshop is now available for booking:

This workshop is aimed primarily at someone starting out in astronomy.
Getting a new telescope for Christmas? Feeling a bit daunted by it and don’t know how to set it up or what to point it at?
Bring it along to this hands-on workshop to learn about our fantastic hobby.
I’ll show you how to find your way a round the sky and what to look at.
I’ll also show you how to set your telescope up and the different accessories available to go with it, what they do, why you might need them (or not!) and how they are used.
We’ll look at sources of information and advice, so you can develop your interest even further.
You will then be able to get the very best out of your telescope and the hobby.

Cost is £30 for a full day of tuition and hands-on the telescope.

Space limited to 15 delegates so I can give as much attention as possible to each person.

Keep looking for events and presentations I give around the country.
My Talk Schedule for 2017 – 18 is here.

Astrophotography Guides.
Following on from my extremely successful astrophotography workshops, I have been busy writing guides to further support some of the techniques that were covered during the day.

My Springer book, From Casual Stargazer to Amateur Astronomer is available from all good book stores, or directly from me at any of my talks.

I am really proud of it and from feedback I have had people really enjoy reading it and find lots of useful hints and tips when progressing in astronomy.

“Dave Eagle’s ‘From Casual Stargazer to Amateur Astronomer’ is a truly wonderful book” Kadri Tinn. AstroMadness.com.

I have read it twice now and I must say that it is simply the most valuable book I have read on the topic so far. Many thanks for lighting the way!” E Mail from satisfied reader.

If you bring a copy along to one of my talks, or buy one from me at my events, I’ll sign it for you and with my scribble, it will make it worth a far lot less than you paid for it. 🙂 

On these pages you will find my Astronomy Sky Diary, my best astronomy and wildlife images and some of our trip reports.
