I have been a continuous member of the BAA since 1972 and since retiring as director of the Computing Section I have spent my time on a large number of astronomy-related projects. I completed BAA Journals since 1890, Memoirs, Circulars and Lunar Section Circulars, The Moon and the Variable Star Section reports. I've also digitised works by Elger, Peek, Lenham and Waterfield - what amazing artists these people were. I am the "eclipse expert" Astro-Eclipse to see the 2019 eclipse in Argentina. I also advise people and companies on eclipse tours, and have led many such tours. I have now been to 17 total solar eclipses and visit local astronomy groups giving eclipse-related talks. I have written several books and publications on eclipses. I run outreach events to the Open University's observatory. Currently I only get out my telescopes when something special occurs, or to show visitors what modern equipment is capable of.
