ITU is the brainchild of Paddy and some astronomy friends. The lack of clear nights and good skies in the UK, together with a busy work/home schedule meant they were rarely enjoying their passion: astro-imaging! They pondered a solution: other subscription services offered only a partial answer. After many hours of hard work and planning they believe they believe they have found the perfect remedy.
Paddy and his family live in Worcestershire in the UK. A place where in imaging terms the skies sometimes tease but rarely please, delivering far too few images per year in realistic terms. His youngest son is now of the age where he is becoming independent allowing Paddy to focus more time on his interests and hobbies, astro-photography being the main one.
By day he plies his trade as a business process consultant and ERP solutions architect, don't worry if you don't know what this is as it baffles him at the best of times aswell. By night, no he isn't Batman, Paddy focuses on his passion for astronomy and imaging.
Paddy's aim to inspire others to take part this wonderful hobby as well as making quality equipment for available for all of us. Although already an avid astronomer, it was just three years ago when Paddy started the dark art that is astro imaging and according to his peers in that shot time he has achieved remarkable results. He has recieved prizes and accolaids for his astro imaging but for Paddy the greatest praise is knowing hundreds of people are looking at his work and being inspired by it.
On a personal level Paddy hopes that he can continue advancing and pushing the frontiers of amateur astro imaging. and if one day if his skills are deemed good enough he may be invited to work on data produced by professional telescopes.
