My full-dome, audience-interactive, presenter-led planetarium shows are engaging, educational and suitable for all ages and levels of knowledge. For details of the planetarium click the following link:

My school presentations are written to support the teacher in the classroom topics, following the current national curriculum requirements. I run full day and half day visits, incorporating STEM presentation, bottle-rocket workshops as well as planetarium shows.
Visit my Web page for more details of my school visits:

Please note:
The 5 meter wide planetarium does require a room area of at least 6m x 6m and at least a full 5m height.
The floor also needs to be clean. A large hall or gymnasium are ideal.

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.


“Two very useful guides I purchased on Sunday at the astrophotography event I attended in Northampton. What they lack in page count, they more than make up for in concise information. In both cases they they offer practical, step by step information from capture to processing. Seeing is doing, as they say and I reckon I’m going to get more out of these than I’ve so far gleaned from many of the more weighty tomes I have; in fact, in many ways these will help me understand better the information within those other tomes.”

“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.
But be aware, 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.
