About the Lecture: Remote Telescopes for Public and Educational use. How to gain access to telescopes and observatories across the globe for private use and for teachers / STEM Ambassadors to use in the classroom. The talk also covers where you can find FREE Data from Space Probes etc that you can process for yourself.

About the Speaker: I embarked on my astronomical journey in 1967 when I started Hagley RC Secondary School and noticed an observatory in a garden near the school playing fields in the village of Churchill Worcestershire.

After several attempts of knocking on the door of the owner and being told to go away I was eventually allowed in to take a look. The observatory was owned by Mr Brian Manning a noted discoverer of asteroids ( who then took me under his wing along with my good friend Rowland Hill (deceased).

We joined the Kidderminster Astronomical Society where I had to a travel 46 miles round trip by bus to the meetings, I was now 11 years old and very keen to observe and learn. My Grandfather bought me a 2″ Tasco Refractor for starters and at the age of 12 years old I went on to build my own 6″ Reflector grinding my own mirrors, building the skeleton tube and butchering a microscope for an eyepiece.
