I’m Amanda, a recent Astroheart and Graeme’s partner. I adore the images that come from photographing space and am in constant awe of the beauty that is above yet so rarely seen. My first astronomical experience was looking through the eyepiece and seeing the Pleiades for the first time, and the sense of wonder and home that that brought.

Although I don’t do astrophotography, I do provide a lot of background and context to what Graeme images. Not just recent science, which I leave more to him, but the ancient history from lost civilisations, and their bearing and relationships to modern astronomy.
