When I was 8 years old my father bought me a small refractor. Even though it had it`s limitations, it was enough to spark a life long passion, and my quest to explore the universe had begun. I have mostly been a visual observer , however having exhausted much of what was possible to view from my light polluted London suburb I began to think about what direction to take to keep me motivated. It was then I began to take an interest in transient events, namely lunar and asteroidal occultations. The thrill of hunting down the shadow of an asteroid and then being able to submit useful data is what I mainly strive for. I have also begun to monitor double star lunar occultations. I use my Celestron C9.25 from an observatory plus I have a 10" dob which I take to the dark skies of Suffolk in the spring and autumn to continue my enjoyment of deep sky visual observing.
