Affiliate Links

Some of the links on this website are what is known as affiliate links.

These links will take you to a product or service (such as a telescope or piece of astronomy software) which you are then able to buy.

If you do buy the product after following a click on one of my affiliate links, I will receive a commission. This is often very small (e.g. 4% on and has no impact on the price you pay for the product or service. It is the seller of the product or service pays the commission.
