Astro-photographer in Cornwall unveils exclusive insight into Universe

With Valentine’s Day a prominent figure on the horizon many of the people who are going all out to spoil their significant other by staying in Cornish cottage holidays  will be spending their evening looking up at the stars as they stroll around this beautiful part of the country.

Light pollution can hinder your attempts to impress your date with your knowledge of the constellations, and we suggest getting your hands on a telescope. A telescope is recommended as barely an hour from Cornwall’s biggest city, Truro, is an astro-photographer nestled away in a wooded valley at the four domes of Caradon Observatory enjoying the sights of the vast cosmos.

Mr Bennett, claims unrivalled access to an unpolluted area of sky accepted by astronomers as being amongst the best in Britain at the Caradon Observatory.

The vision for Caradon Observatory is simple: to inspire people of all ages, but particularly the young, to develop an interest in science through the study of the skies. And with the image of Messier 42, also known as the Great Orion Nebula, taken from Bodmin Moor, 1400 light years away taken by Wayne Thomas we’re off to find our telescope!
