My main interest is the observation and timing of occultations which stated when I was a member of the JAS (SPA). Then in 1980 I started visual monitoring of asteroidal occultations using BAA predictions by Gordon E. Taylor,  but it was some while before my first successful video recording, that of (130) Elektra (10.7 seconds) in 2010.  I have now reported over 30 positive events seen since 2010. This is due to improved predictions, prediction numbers and collaboration between observers.

In the last few years i have also recorded some nice lunar grazing occultations by Video with good timing accuracy.

I help coordinate occultation observing through the Asteroid and Remote Planets Section, and Lunar Section and my local AS is in Maidenhead where I arrange the speaker program.
