Here are some of my astronomy related offerings.


I'm involved in a few podcasts. You can find my astronomy-related ones entitled A beginner's guide to the night sky on Hacker Public Radio, along with some other more computer-related musings.


I've given various lectures on astronomy over the years and here you'll find some slides I used for them.
