I have found that many of the Society members are very knowledgeable and keen to pass on their experience to other members, which is very helpful.
As Vice Chairman I would like to promote the Society better and increase the membership.
I have been interested in astronomy since I was at school but only developed a keener interest after leaving school and purchasing a telescope.
I now have several scopes and I like to take images of lots of astronomical objects but still like wide-field images too. I hope to build a home observatory soon.
I always have great interest on Science and mystery of the universe, especially matters relating to aliens, and I find the astrophotography pictures are fascinating. I decided to take on astronomy hobby seriously after I attended NSAS Astronomy Stargazing at Millennium Green event at Audley Community Centre recently and Duncan has inspired me to purchase a refractor to begin my astronomy journey. I hope I can use my academic and technical backgrounds from other fields to carry out various research and record my learning process by getting more involvement with the club within the remit of the Multimedia Officer Role. I manage to stretch myself out of my comfort zone as I slowly get to know the Club. We have a bunch of friendly and helpful members which I haven’t experienced in my other hobbies/ventures.
