Biographical note (a single note referring to all contributors to a product – see PR.8.17 for a biography which is linked to a single contributor)

JOHN A. READ's journey into astronomy began with a small and rickety telescope purchased at the local pharmacy. He was fascinated that it was possible to observe the moon and Saturn with its rings with such meager equipment. He knew he had to share these views with others. After writing his first book, 50 Things to See with a Small Telescope, John retired from his career in corporate finance. John is now a telescope operator at the Burke-Gaffney Observatory, sits on the board of directors at the Halifax Centre of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada and is studying astrophysics at Saint Mary's University. He lives in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
