Tim Haymes

My interest is mainly the observation and timing of Lunar occultations which I stared as young member of the JAS (SPA) in the early '70s. Then in 1980 I started visual monitoring of asteroidal occultations using BAA predictions by Gordon E. Taylor,  but it was some while before my first successful video recording, that of (130) Elektra (10.7 seconds) in 2010.  A very exciting evening.   I have now recorded up more than 30 positive events. 

In the last few years i have also recorded some nice lunar grazing occultations with good timing accuracy.

I help coordinate occultation observing through the Asteroid and Remote Planets Section, and the Lunar Section. My local AS is now Chipping Norton.  I am also a member of the International Occultation Timing Association, European section. (IOTA/ES).
