Born in London in 1956, Keith remembers being interested in astronomy since he was about 10 years old. He studied astrophysics at university. By the time he graduated, his other love… engineering… was looking like a better way of earning a living and so he started a career in the aerospace industry, working in the field of infra-red optics and systems.

He combines his engineering skills with astronomy and now enjoys making telescopes and other accessories. In recognition of his contribution to the field of amateur instrumentation, Keith was elected a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society in 2001.

This is Keith’s 16th consecutive TSP and currently runs the ATM programme.
