Some very important "software" for fending off the cold on long winter nights in the observatory!

Some very important “software” for fending off the cold on long winter nights in the observatory!

Hi, I’m a retired research scientist (Physicist/Mathematician) who has turned to Astronomy to maintain an active interest in science. I have “dabbled” in astrophotography and will add some examples of my work as I develop this site however, my main focus is currently spectroscopy and this is taking up most of my time.

I am Treasurer of the Horsham Astronomy Group (http://70.33.246.110/~horsh789/) that meets on the first Wednesday of most months at Christs Hospital School near Horsham.

If anyone shares similar interests then please contact me (especially if you have an observatory at a site not almost permanently clouded out – as here in the UK). I would be happy to collaborate on projects.
