Interstellar Light and Other Quantum Effects

Welcome to the web presence for SkySlab, a resource for amateur astronomy.

The goal in running these pages is to educate, inspire and lead those interested in space futures at an amateur or citizen science level.

This includes education through communication and continued production of media on space related matters; inspiration through demonstration of the practical outcomes and achievements that can gained by participating in astronomy and astrophysics; and leadership through involvement in other organisations and educational activities & providing a gateway to these for like minded people of all ages.

Future plans include developing courses on matters relating to practical amateur astronomy and citizen science and developing partnerships with other industry bodies with similar goals and interests.

If you, as a visitor to the site, enjoy these images then firstly – thanks for your interest! Next, if you would like a copy of one, feel free to contact me.

The images on this site are, in the main, lower resolution and lower quality than are held on storage media locally.

If requested, a higher resolution image can be provided for your viewing pleasure.


Other pages on this site include a gallery of images processed by me, notes and blogs on astronomy equipment and techniques, other things that might be interesting and educational resources for the casual visitor.
