    Chris, from Warrington in the north west (currently feeling very jealous of Andrew there with his hills and his black skies and everything! )

    Currently not much of an astronomer with my £30 lidl budgetscope (actually much better than the price might suggest!) but I write astronomy software when I get time (which is rare). So far only RedScreen for mac has been released ( RedScreen ) but I have an asteroid hunting app half-written (I'm testing that just now and getting it to perform..) and a somewhat exotic realtime imaging system that's progressing a bit slowly (most of the parts are there, but hanging them all together is taking some time).

    Im from Greater London, in the Essex area. I'm currently studying A levels but will hopefully be studying a maths degree from September onwards - either at the University Of East Anglia or Loughborough. I own 2 telescopes at the moment; an Astromaster 130 EQ and a Skywatcher flex tube dob 250 PX.

    As well as astronomy, I enjoy playing sports (mainly football and golf). I also enjoy playing computer games, especially on cloudy nights when I can't use the telescopes
