My name is Pete Williamson FRAS welcome to my website, all aspects of my work and how to book me for my services are listed here. I am available for Talks & Workshops for Societies, Schools, Colleges and other organisations such as U3A, WI and many more throughout the UK, Ireland in person plus across the globe via Zoom.
Working as a consultant and imager for many educational remote access telescopes across the globe I am able to deliver workshops directly into the classroom, society practical workshops and photographic club meetings. As a freelance astronomer it allows me to have the flexibility to work along side or with many organisations such as Faulkes Telescope Project, National Schools Observatory, Slooh Educational Projects, Universities, schools and many more astronomical organisations. You can select the remote on-line telescope service of your choice from the footer menu or menu at the top of the page. I will only be too pleased to help you obtain access and assist you to use these telescopes if required. Access can only be granted if your are eligible and fit the criteria set down by the organisation who control the telescopes observatories. Please do not hesitate to enquire what the criteria requirements are.
