Paul and Liz (the Earthlings) are astronomers and astro-photographers, with a selection of telescopes, cameras and tracking devices which are used interchangeably to produce the images which you will see on this site.  We live in England and have a pretty busy life.  Liz is a practicing reflexologist - IIR, AoR, ART and a qualified Nutritional Therapist - dip. NT (CNNT).  Paul is a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society (FRAS), Chairman of the local Parish Council and sings in a choir.  However, we try to spend as much time as we can under the clear skies of southern Spain where we have built an observatory.  This site also contains a lot of technical information about astronomy.  You can access some of it here.  Enjoy your stay, and please feel free to ask us questions.

Messier 51 in the constellation of Canes Venatici.  This super double galaxy is actually quite close to the last star in the handle of the Big Dipper and in this image you can see quite well the bridge joining the two galaxies together.  This image was taken at our Spanish observatory in June 2007 and we were helped to process the data by our friend and fine astronomer, Jay McNeil.  You can also browse this Full Resolution Image (2.0Mb).   For information on the Earthlings please see:  Earthlings Information
