About Me

David O'Driscoll

I joined the Astronomical Association of Queensland in 2005 after many years' interest in astronomy, including 2 years as a member of the Northern Districts Society of Amateur Astronomers in Sydney in the late 1980’s.

As an IT professional of some 30 years, I have naturally gravitated to the world of online, remote astronomy, which allows me to combine my interests in astronomy with my IT skills. In recent years I have been balancing interests in variable star photometry and double star astrometry.

While I love using remote scopes to take images, I acknowledge that none of them will ever win a David Malin award!!

Alas, these days I seem to be spending more time on astronomy websites and databases than actual observation and research.
