Practical Astronomy Show 2022 - Speakers confirmed


Recommended Posts


This year's Practical Astronomy Show is on Saturday March 19th 2022
PAS2022 is your chance to see and buy products from the major astronomy equipment manufacturers, as well as attend free talks from leading astro imagers and amateur astronomers.

Unlike any other astronomy show, the show is completely FREE to attend, and the talks are FREE too - talk tickets will be available at the show. The venue is also well lit, and easy to get to. Parking is free on-site, and refreshments are available on-site. Full disabled access is of course provided.


Show location: Kettering Conference & Leisure Village (click for map)


  • Paul Money "Choosing and using your first telescope"
  • Robin Glover “How to Polar Align accurately with SharpCap
  • Helmut Kessler "Hydrogen Alpha Etalons and Solar Telescopes"
  • Gain Lee "An introduction to Backyard Astro Imaging"
  • Ivaylo Stoynov "Introduction to APT Astrophotography Tool Software"
  • Damian Peach – "Imaging the Solar System"

We'll release talk times closer to the show.


Hope to see you there again, and here's some pictures from the last show:

Date entered into my diary.

The last show was great. A nice easy place to get to and no rip off parking charges.
Very helpful retailers and very good displays of all their wares.
One problem.....Just how do you find time to wander around all the stands and attend the lectures?

Nick what time do the doors open please ?

I can't see it on the website anywhere

According to the speaker list, the first talk is by Paul Money at 9:30  - which gives an indication of 'doors open' time. 


Now that'll wake everyone up!

As I have an inkling to buy something that could do with a chat, look and handle, rather than a web page, I have just taken a look at the exhibitors list.
Comparing to last time, it seems there will be a few missing.
Rother Valley, Widescreen, Orion Optics (for example I remember from last time) are not on the list.
