Brough Astronomy [BLAS]

About Me

I live in Pocklington, been here for five years.Have three kids and married. I am a qualified architect but am aiming to set up my own 3d architectural visualisation business shortly - something Ive been wanting to do for years.

Got a 6" Helios Apollo reflector but havent really used it yet. I will get to use it someday!

Used to be really into astronomy when I was younger - sitting on the flat roof at home with my binoculars and then a small refracting telescope. Havent really done much rencetly, especially since I got a family, other than using binoculars on the odd occasion when camping and in the garden - just too busy most of the time!

I also have a couple of astronomy software packages - Starry Night Sky Pro 6 and the brilliant free Stellarium - for armchair astronomy. I also really like watching all the astonomy tv programmes that are on and liked the recent Stargazing programmes I think that Brian Cox is quite good at explaining the complex in an interesting way.

Hi Nats
Welcome to the Brough Astronomy site, glad to hear that you enjoy the pursuit of astronomy, my question is why have you not used the telescope instead of the binocs?
have you had a look at the "links" tab for some other sites.

As you live fairly local to us why not give us a visit and see what we do and look into the depths and visions of the night sky [also not forgetting our sun]

If you are interested just email me and we will give you some contact phone numbers.
