The Gadget Show – astronomy apps and telescope tech

Back in December I spent a fun evening filming with the team from The Gadget Show in the spectacular ruins of Llanthony Priory, in Wales. We filmed a segment for the last episode in series 19, which aired on Monday, about astronomy apps and amateur telescopes. If you’re in the UK and you missed the broadcast you can watch it again by following this link to The Gadget Show video player.

The Gadget Show looks to the stars

Just a very quick post to say that, for anyone in the UK, I’ll be on Channel Five’s The Gadget Show tomorrow night (Monday 10th May) talking telescopes with presenter Jon Bentley. The programme starts at 8pm but I don’t know what time the section we filmed will be shown. The show has over 2.5 million viewers, so I’m hoping that there’ll be loads of people whose interest has been sufficiently piqued to find out what this astronomy lark is all about!

Update 11.05.10: The section of the show where we looked at telescopes is now online on The Gadget Show’s website here.
