About Andrew Corkill

I've been an Amateur Astronomer for over 40 years. I have a SkyShed POD observatory that I've christened "Riverstar Observatory" and do mostly visual observing. I'm a Master Binocular Observer with the Astronomical League. I use various binoculars for observing, from 7x50, 10x50, 20x80 to 25x100's and Explore Scientific 120mm Binoculars.

My observatory houses either an Explore Scientific ED152 (6") APO Refractor or a Meade 14" ACF f/10 on an Explore Scientific Losmandy G-11 with PMC-Eight Drive System. Depending on types of observations I'm involved with I'll swap out the OTA's. I've been primarily focused on other Astronomical League Visual Observing Programs. I'm a member of AAVSO and an avid Variable Star Observer.

I currently work as a Marketing Executive for Targus, and in the early 2000's, I was the Product Manager for the ETX Line of Telescopes at Meade Instruments. So I've spent time playing around with a lot of different equipment and ways to be connected with Astronomy.
