Martin Lewis

Although for many years exclusively a visual observer, interested in sketching the deep sky, I have, since 2007, also become an active planetary imager. I have two home-built Dobsonian Newtonian scopes- a 222mm aperture ('Mr. Orb Inspector') and a 444mm aperture ('Fossil Light'). I use both for visual and planetary imaging. For imaging these sit on a home-built synchronous motor driven equatorial platform. I also run a home-made AllSky camera from time to time. In the night-time I observe and image from my back garden in St Albans, whilst in the daytime I am principal engineer for a Cambridge based X-ray scintillation company. I am interested in all aspects of the sky and my drawings images and other thoughts and investigations can be found on my website; . I am also treasurer and membership secretary of the West of London Astronomical Society ( My Twitter handle is @SkyInspector
