Welcome to The Alan Norman Observatory…

My name is Darren Jehan, an amateur astronomer based in Bedfordshire. The site contains my astro-images, observing/imaging reports and various articles of astronomy related topics.

I am an active member of Bedford Astronomical Society and enjoy bringing astronomy to the public through our outreach events and public observing sessions.

I am also one of the team of administrators on Stargazerslounge - one of the world's largest amateur astronomy forums. Be sure to drop by the Lounge - you'll find useful information, as well as discussions on all astro-related subjects!

The site is under development so feel free to check back often!

Please note that some of the pages/posts images may not display correctly - I am currently reworking the image hosting and they will be fixed as soon as possible!
