Certainly one of the best things about my "job" is receiving nice messages and emails from viewers.
This one from a viewer called Steve was especially nice, as it was responding to a recent Deep Sky Video which was rather experimental!
I've just watched your video of the VLT opening in real time.
Can I just say that this is one of the most beautiful and spine tingling videos I've ever watched. The fact that it shows in real time what's happening gives me a feeling, that no 'normal' documentary ever can, of what it's like to actually be there.
As a science geek, I love hearing about the details of these telescopes: about the engineering and the awe-inspiring work that they do and I'm spoilt for choice of documentaries about such things.
But as a human being it's a rare feeling (albeit via youtube) to actually be there.
I'm a huge fan of all the documentaries that you've done but this one is something else. I'm actually quite envious of what you do and this video really captures the magic of what I guess you must feel when you're there.
Keep up the great work!!!
Thanks Steve... And here's the video:
