I live in West Wiltshire whilst my skies aren't brilliant they are better than where I grew up in London. I have an interest in most things astronomical that vary over short periods of time: Solar and planetary imaging,Comets and Asteroid astrometry,Exoplanet photometry,and Spectroscopy. I seem to spend and increasing amount of time writing software to support the planning or processing of the observations I make: Start Charts, Image processing and photometric reduction None of these bit of code are ever finished (the joy of being an amateur), but I find the process of writing the software helps me to understand the existing software I use. The other side of my interest is fixing and fettling with scopes, mounts, binoculars, and instruments. Having just moved house the latest project is building a new observatory. When finished this will house two piers for the 12 inch reflector and 5 inch refractor.
