Thank you to my fabulous audience and readers for the great comments below that I have received about my presentations, books and workshops:
“I attended one of these workshops last year, and have booked in the January workshop as a refresher, as it is such good value for money. A few years ago I attended a 3hr night photography class by someone in Milton Keynes for £60, so a full day of expert Astrophotography tuition and hands on practical exercises is incredible value for money. (Glad I’ve already booked before saying this…)”
“Compliments on it Dave, well written, well explained.”
“Just a quick note to say thank you very much for the course the other Saturday. It’s finally got me going with Deep Sky Stacker, and being able to get something out of the photos with Photoshop. Once again, many thanks, your insights were really helpful and made for a very enjoyable day.”
” I was there, and it was great. Thank you Dave, very well delivered and informative!”
“Dave’s enthusiasm and knowledge is infectious. Willing to help and answer any question”.
“Great to see you again and brilliant talk on Saturday morning, great start to the day’s activities!” Paul Money – Horncastle Astronomy Weekend.
“Thanks Dave for your advice and kind words, as you say the course is just the start and we can all learn from each other. All fired up now for the next imaging session and the next course. Dave you really have been an inspiration and great help”.
“Thoroughly enjoyed last night (Thumbs Up!).”
“So did I Dave Eagle always delivers doesn’t he”.
“I was worried for people’s anatomy during the target practice. (Not as much as they were.)”.
“Brilliant talk last eve Dave – loved the Newton law demos”.
“Thanks for a great day at the workshop. Hopefully I took most of the information in and can retrieve it when needed 🙂 Anyway I learnt a great deal and things aren’t quite as dark now.”
“Really found your course interesting and I understand more things now”.
“An excellent workshop once again – I gained a lot out of this and two nice pictures. I was chuffed they were my subs resulting in my images”.
“Really enjoyed today, thanks Dave. Feeling even more inspired now!”
“Thanks for a fantastic talk as always Dave – and I now know comet nomenclature! Bonus!”
“I would recommend Dave’s new Astrophotography Workshop to all, he brings together knowledge and enthusiasm, passing it on to those of all skill levels.”
“I was so looking forward to this ‘hands- on’ course and it lived up to beyond my expectations – I was so enthused I carried on when I got home – thanks Dave you have the patience of a saint – can’t wait for the next one!”
“Thank you again for a well run workshop and I would be very interested in any other workshops you may have in the pipe line. As you said a lot to take on. As I’m new to all of this but I come away from the workshop knowing a lot more than before.”
“Wow, that was some talk last night. Our members were certainly buzzing with enthusiasm about it and very complimentary about your delivery. Thank you for a very entertaining and informative evening.”
“Dave Eagle’s “From Casual Stargazer to Amateur Astronomer” is a truly wonderful book, a guiding hand that will lead you from losing hope in ever observing anything interesting again, to being inspired and motivated to observe anything and everything and to really observe it and not just look at it”. Review on Astromadness.com
“Dave Eagle’s, ‘From Casual Stargazer to Amateur Astronomer’ is a truly wonderful book … to being inspired and motivated to observe anything and everything and to really observe it and not just look at it. It functions exceedingly well at really showing the reader how to go from basics to paying close attention to what, when and how you observe and record. Highly recommended!”
“I have read it twice now and I must say that it is simply the most valuable book I have read on the topic so far. Many thanks for lighting the way!”.
“I would like to thank you on behalf of our members for an interesting, stimulating and a beautifully presented lecture”.
“Thanks for a fantastic talk, a really good presentation last week, I’m sure all enjoyed it. Have a good Christmas and a Healthy and Happy New Year. P.S. See you next year”.
“Fantastic talk tonight on Rosetta & Philae lander, really enjoyed it!”
“Thank you so much for that amazing talk last night “.
“Fantastic talk from @DaveEagle45 about Rosetta & the plucky lander Philae. So much more science still to come from the mission too!”
“Excellent talk as always from
@DaveEagle45 last night. Looking forward to see you at our local club sometime soon”.
“A fantastic talk tonight about Rosetta”.
“I thought I would drop you a quick message to thank you for your talk last week. I found it most interesting and it reinvigorated my waning interest in image processing.”
“…as is always expected from Dave, exceptionally researched. The visuals and facts presented were a reflection of Dave’s enthusiasm for the subject”.
“Just a quick note to say thanks for a very informative and entertaining evening last Thursday. It went down a storm. Members comments were very positive, and everyone could appreciate the amount of work that goes into such a presentation, which you obviously enjoy delivering”.
“Great talk tonight by Dave Eagle. Facts delivered with plenty of stunning photographs, video clips and humour”.
“Just a brief message to thank you for your fantastic talk tonight. We have had many memorable speakers over the years and your presentation was most definitely in that category. Your enthusiasm was very evident and I can honestly tell you that it ended far too soon. Thanks for a riveting talk and hope to see you back again”.
“Just thought I would thank you for your talk on Tuesday, one of the best and informative talks we have had. Thanks hope to see you in the future”.
“Dear Dave, Excellent talk and I’d like to book you for later in the year”.
“I would like to take this opportunity, on behalf of the Society, in thanking you very much for coming along to give an excellent, interesting and entertaining presentation”.
“Just to say thank you for a very interesting and enjoyable talk last night, you mentioned that you have other talks in your repertoire, could you please email details of them for possible future visits”.
“Dave was absolute rubbish! He knew nothing about astrology, and couldn’t tell my fortune!”.
OK, OK, so I made this last one up; but the others are real comments that have been sent to me or posted on social media.
