It has been a few years since I last used the Bradford Telescope but I am happy to see that it is still an excellent telescope to use. My name is John and I live in Liverpool in the UK, I am 53 (why do I suddenly feel old?) and to my knowledge I am the only amateur (now that my good friend Patrick Moore has passed) in the Royal Astronomical Society. I first used this telescope many years ago when it was a free service but the small fee is not only one the cheapest on the net, but is the best value for money out there.
I have just taken my first picture using the telescope and, after a bit of adjustment to bring out the finer details in the galaxy, my first picture is one I am extremely happy with. Let me know what you think!
I look forward to getting to know you all soon.
