Hello, I am an amateur astronomer and I live in Gloucester UK. My main interests in astronomy are the search for near Earth asteroids, supernova and I image deep sky objects. I record objects down to 19th magnitude using a Starlight Express CCD camera. The camera is linked to the prime focus of a robotic computerized Mead LX200 25cm F6.3 Schmidt Cassegrain reflector. I also do astrometric and photometric observational work on asteroids, comets and Quasars. The telescope is permanently housed in the observatory named Mount Tuffley Observatory ( MTO). I was honoured to have the observatory officially inaugurated by C4 TV astronomer and presenter Heather Couper.
