An experienced amateur astronomer. I have a 16-inch reflector in my backyard observatory; both constructed in the early 1970s.
I have had it as a hobby since 1954, when I built my first telescope. My wife (Glenna) & I are chasers of total solar eclipses, and have been to 17 so far, plus two transits of Venus.
I am a WAS member for the past 42 years; twice President in the 1970s.
