Every third week of February, Philippines celebrate the National Astronomy Week (NAW). Yesterday, I was invited to a radio interview with fellow amateur astronomers from UP Astronomical Society to discuss about the NAW 2019, and explain how to get started with amateur astronomy.

Equipment Photo Featured in Harper Collins Book

A few months ago, an editor from Harper Collins Publishers requested permission to use my photo that shows how to connect a DSLR to a telescope. I granted them permission to use the photo for free, and as a token of thanks, they sent me two copies of their book. Thanks, Harper Collins!
