I live in Pocklington, been here for five years.Have three kids and married. I am a qualified architect but am aiming to set up my own 3d architectural visualisation business shortly - something Ive been wanting to do for years.
Got a 6" Helios Apollo reflector but havent really used it yet. I will get to use it someday!
Used to be really into astronomy when I was younger - sitting on the flat roof at home with my binoculars and then a small refracting telescope. Havent really done much rencetly, especially since I got a family, other than using binoculars on the odd occasion when camping and in the garden - just too busy most of the time!
I also have a couple of astronomy software packages - Starry Night Sky Pro 6 and the brilliant free Stellarium - for armchair astronomy. I also really like watching all the astonomy tv programmes that are on and liked the recent Stargazing programmes I think that Brian Cox is quite good at explaining the complex in an interesting way.
