Skipper Billy

Will you help a young Astronomer??

Recommended Posts

Just ordered a copy, it is a remarkable achievement for one so young.

I wish him all the best for his future.

The book, or rather booklet, arrived this morning. 28 pages. Not bad considering the age of the author. 👍🏻

Just placed an order, thanks skipper for bringing it to our attention👍  Would be great if an astronomy supplier would jump on board. 

Bought three copies, one each for my two nieces and my sister who has Down's syndrome. 

 

Hey @FLO what say if we can get to 50 "ordered" replies on this thread, perhaps you could consider sending Aston a small FLO gift voucher or something along those lines? :)

Mine arrived today - it's well worth the cost and hopefully Aston will keep going learning and writing about his interest.

We contacted Aston's parents when Skipper Billy bought him to our attention. His book is now available to buy at FLO.

I've just ordered a copy for my Goddaughter who is obsessed with all things space at the minute. 

Well done Aston. I hope you enjoy your astro journey. 👍

What a remarkable young boy, a treasure, can I order the book in Canada?

Welcome to the forum Lyndsay (and Aston). If I may, I'd like to ask the question that I know everyone here has been dying to know the answer to since they read the first post...

 

Which telescope is Aston saving up for?

Hi :) 

Well Aston believes he is saving up for a better telescope (exact one not decided on) but my husband and I have bought him a Celestron Nexstar 8SE for Christmas :)
