About Me

Alan Baldwin

Alan got really interested in astronomy when he attended Wellington College which had a functioning observatory where you could undertake daylight viewing of Venus, sunspots, and prominences with a Zeiss slit spectroscope. Later on he did some visual variable star observing plus data analysis on a Mira variable(S Car). Soon after my work in managing milk powder research and development in the NZ dairy industry and family took over and I dropped out of observing for some time. I am still working part-time but now have time for some observing. Located in Palmerston North, NZ, and observes with a 250 mm Dobsonian and 50 mm finder.
