Paul Downing, FRAS

My astronomy happens in southern Spain, where we have an observatory housing a 12.5" Planewave telescope. We also have a 16" truss tube Newtonian and a 4" fluorite Takahashi refractor. I specialise in imaging galaxies and nebulae, using a QSI 683 CCD camera. For several years now I have been responsible for selecting and posting Picture of the Week on the BAA website.
