NASTRO Committee (2021-22)
The following members were elected to serve on the committee at the AGM.
I’ve been interested in astronomy for many years but up until recently have never been able to afford a telescope. I have been a member of NASTRO since 2010 and have learned a great deal from the more experience members of the club. My main interest is astrophotography and I have recently built an observatory in my garden where my 11’’ Celestron lives.
I try and attend most of NASTRO’s public events where I enjoy showing people the views of the night sky through my telescope.

Hello! I've been a member of NASTRO since it started in 2000. I was the Training Officer for most of that period and Chair of the club in 2011/12. I've regularly given lectures and run astronomy courses for beginners at the club and for public outreach events around the northeast. I've been interested in astronomy since I was very young and I'm still as excited about it now as I was then!
I have several telescopes: the biggest is a 16 inch Dobsonian (for visual observations) and I've got a lovely Meade LX10 (8 inch SCT) for visual and imaging purposes.
