My name is Martin Nelson, I am 52 years old and have had a life long interest in anything to do with physics and space, boats, imaging and photography, and and have been actively imaging since 1999. I am a member of the BAA, Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society and member of the Worcester Astronomical Society.
