Contact me

I welcome contact from fellow astronomers and astrophotographers, particularly those interested in the iOptron CEM60 mount.  I try to reply in a timely manner but I am afraid that sometimes a busy life means a bit of delay to my responses.


You can e-mail me at ian.russell@ir-astro123.com - but remove the 123 from the address (sorry, I’m trying to avoid spam from web crawlers).


All of the images on this website are protected by copyright irrespective of whether the individual image carries a copyright notice. You do not need to seek permission to use the desktop backgrounds (wallpapers) but if you would like to use any other image then you must receive permission which you can request by e-mailing me.


There will not usually be a fee, even for commercial use, but these images take many hours to capture and process and I appreciate knowing how and where they are used.
