    Default Any recommendations for Astro YouTube channels?



    Hi all,

    As the thread title suggests, can you recommend any particularly good YouTube channels for astronomers?

    Gear reviews, general information about astronomy, etc.

    Cheers in advance!
    Graham.

    There is this guy. Some like him some don't

    https://www.youtube.com/user/astronomyshed/videos

    There is also Forest Tanaka's video series on astrophotography

    https://www.youtube.com/user/ForrestTanaka/featured

    Many others on various topics.

    As with most internet 'sources' take a lot of them with a grain of salt. Ive seen some good ones and some bad ones especially when dealing with collimation and or autoguiding.

    Cheers mate, I'll check those out.
    Yeah, I've seen some shockingly poor videos, so felt compelled to ask!

    Ps! On initial inspection, I quite like astronomyshed! I like the real amateur stuff, just some the channels I've been looking at are a little too poor...
    Cheers again!

    Here's another vote for Eyes In The Sky and Forrest Tanaka but there are so many out there depending on your specific interests.
