I have been interested in astronomy since I was given a 1-inch draw-tube telescope for my 11th Birthday some 62 years ago! I still have it. My latest acquisitions are a MyT mount and 8-inch Ritchey Chretien carbon fibre tube OTA. I now have a run off roof observatory at my place in Spain and can control the roof and telescope from inside the house. When in the UK I use the 'itelescope'  remote telescopes in New Mexico, New South Wales, California, Spain and Chile I recently published a book on imaging the Messier Objects using remote telescopes. 

I am a member of Norwich Astronomical Society
