Ade Ashford

A keen observer since the 1970s, I've travelled the globe writing about stargazing and telescopes, serving on the staff of astronomy magazines on both sides of the Atlantic. A former Sky & Telescope Associate Editor from the turn of the millennium, I've contributed optical equipment reviews to S&TAstronomy Now and elsewhere for a quarter of a century. My favourite place to observe from is the heart of New Zealand's South Island in the Aoraki Mackenzie International Dark Sky Reserve, where I provided public outreach for the University of Canterbury Mount John Observatory. I'm a member of the Royal Astronomical Society of New Zealand.
