NASTRO Committee (2021-22)
The following members were elected to serve on the committee at the AGM.
Dr Adrian Jannetta FRAS CMath
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.
You can follow me on Twitter: @AdrianJannetta and catch my latest astrophotography updates on AstroBin.
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.
