About The Author

Chris Wilkinson Astronomy Scope Founder & Author

Hello, my name is Jeremy and I’ve been stargazing for just over 12 years now.

I’m an experienced astronomer and a keen observer of the night sky.

I’ve learned a considerable amount through the process of buying telescopes.

I remember my first purchase.

I got it horribly wrong!

Two weeks of agony. Unboxing, setting up, failed observations, repackaging, driving to the send the package back.

Then, it took a further 14 days to get my money back.


I have since implemented a process that I follow everytime I want to upgrade my scope.

So, I decided to co-write a book to help define this process, and alleviate all the common errors I made.

This book defines how any aspiring astronomer can approach the market and not feel overwhelmed by the process.
