Below you will find some information on a few of the Astronomy related projects that I have undertaken. I hope this page serves as encouragement for those considering a project. I have just modest skills and experience but have found the process and results to be very rewarding. I hope you enjoy the pages, and maybe find some inspiration here, as I have from the many web pages like this I have searched for ideas.
