Description

I'm very pleased with this.... really surprised what can be achieved on a budget of £150 from zone 2 in London...

I was so pleased with it that I made a video about it (i actually make science documentaries for a living) which I hope will inspire people to give it a go. Please share the video with you're friends as I'm on a mission to turn everyone into an astro geek like me!
