I live in beautiful South East Queensland.
My main passion is Astronomy, focussing on the Astro Imaging side of the hobby.
I'm a long time member of the IceInSpace astronomy forum, the best Astronomy site on the interwebs. :D
Storm chasing and microscopy is my side line during cloudy nights.
Mad keen Amateur Astronomer and Astrophotographer. It's beyond a passion, it's a lifestyle choice. My brag sheet. :) Two of my images are on permanent display at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Centre, Maryland. They are being used to show the Visual Light versions of objects that have been imaged by the Spitzer IR Telescope. My image of "Corona Australis" was short listed in the Royal Observatory Greenwich, Astronomy Photographer of the Year 2011. I'm very proud to have had my work published in magazines across the globe. The US mag "Astronomy Technology Today" published my article on Astro Imaging, commissioned by iOptron.
