1990_Falklands_Weather_Balloon_LaunchI’m from a 2000 year old roman city called Chester situated just south of Liverpool, England. From an early age science, technology and multimedia have always been passions of mine… I bought my first astronomical telescope in 1980, a small 60mm refractor, and once I’d gazed upon Saturn as a tiny cosmic jewel in the sky, I was hooked! This was soon followed by a Sinclair ZX81 computer, although it’s computing power was very limited, I was amazed that along with few hundred lines of code and a tape machine I could create my own interactive games! I then discovered rock music and eventually bought my own guitar and got into recording, mixing and mastering songs onto tape and then onto computers. After working as a meteorological observer in the Met Office for 5 years, I went on to study physics & astronomy at the University of Central Lancashire, and ended up working as software engineer for the next 15 years. I eventually founded Egg Moon Studio in February 2012 in an effort to merge all my experiences and interests into one.

Meade-LXD75-SCTI decided to create the Scope Nights app as it’s an ideal merger of astronomy, meteorology and software, but I was also tired of sifting through conventional weather apps trying to find the night time forecasts to decide whether to setup my scope. I also needed another excuse to get my 8″ Schmidt-Cassegrain Telescope out! … and so Scope Nights was born. It has had great initial reviews from the likes of Sky & Telescope Magazine and Astronomy Now Magazine, and was awarded Hot Product for 2013 by Sky & Telescope. I’ve also had lots of encouraging comments and feedback for new features, and Scope Nights has had some great reviews in the App Store.

Please follow Egg Moon Studio if you would like to hear about the very latest Scope Nights updates and developments, astronomy weather news, or new app developments.

Egg Moon Studio is an independent developer and relies on recommendations and ratings to continue developing apps. So if you like Scope Nights and would like to see new features and continued support, please leave a good rating on the Scope Nights App Store Page.
