If you have a question Andy has not already answered then go to our Ask Andy page and submit it there. When he has a moment, Andy will record video answers to the best questions and they will be posted on this page.


Please note that over the weekend of the 26-28th May 2017 we will be switching over to our brand new website - during this time there may be periods where the site is difficult to access, and users will be unable to request observations from the telescope. Please bear with us during this time. All should be back up and running by the 29th May 2017.
