"We are all in the gutter but some of us are looking at the stars" - Oscar Wilde. My little 'gutter' consists of my wife, 5 children, 1 Triumph Trident motorbike, an NUFC season ticket and an Astro observatory containing two mounts and several self-made spectroscopes. I have a keen interest in Dwarf Novae and conduct CCD photometry on targets of opportunity as posted on the alert websites. Having been awarded a BAA Ridley grant to assist in the purchase of a Shelyak ALPY600 spectroscope I now contribute to the BAA, BeSS and ARAS organisations. A more recent 3D printer purchase has allowed me to build various spectroscopes.
