My name is James Whinfrey and I’m in my third year of amateur astronomy in the UK where it’s wet and cloudy.
I’m not sure why I started, other than the first BBC Stargazing Live, but I’m very glad I did, and I’m hoping I can convince others to have a go too.
I’ve progressed from clueless staring into an eye piece to moderately more-knowledge-than-none and a member of several organisations including a local astro society in Northampton.
I love observing double and variable stars – of which I regularly submit observations – and I’ve several new projects lined up for this year.
And for a first post my choice of title tells the story.
