Welcome to my web site!

This version includes the noctilucent cloud outburst on 21st June and the partial eclipse of the Moon on 16th July - both beautiful events.

All of the images on this site are my own, taken using amateur telescopes and equipment.

As ever, I hope this encourages you to get out there and enjoy the treasures of our universe at first hand.

Best Wishes,  

Peter Garbett
