My introduction to Astronomy began in the 1960s with the revelation that the stars are suns, after reading the Larousse encyclopaedia of astronomy 1968 edition. When I realised the Sun was a star I thought almost immediately do other stars have planetary systems? Back then of course no one knew, but I always thought that eventually they would be found. Now with all the discoveries nearly every week, it's probable most stars will turn out to have planets. I am interested in most things to do with Astronomy whether it's trying to image the Universe, general observing, or just taking in the views with Binoculars. I also love reading about the subject including its history, and latest discoveries, (Which are impossible to keep up with!) More recently I have started Variable star observing with Binoculars. I read somewhere that it is very addictive? and I think they are right. I've found myself looking out of the window for breaks in the cloud to try to squeeze in an observation.
