This is a new petition to call for the control of Light Pollution, and protect the UK dark skies we have left.

Please I would be grateful if you can forward to all those you value natures dark skies!

I choose to image with an 11" SCT Celestron in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard......
