Short biography
Dr. Tony Buick, FRSC, CChem, is an analytical chemist by profession specialising in several aspects of chromatography, High Performance Liquid Chromatography in particular, with international pharmaceutical, veterinary and agricultural companies. He is the author of the first and second editions of “How to Photograph the Moon and Planets with your Digital Camera” (Springer, 2006 and 2011) and “The rainbow Sky” (Springer 2010) that reflected his career interest in many aspects of spectroscopy including magnetic and electron spin resonance. He has had articles published in astronomy and various other magazines such as The Sky at Night and the Society for Popular Astronomy with regard to capturing photographs of the ISS and Iridium satellite trails, Transient Lunar Phenomena and lunar landscapes. He entered retirement by realising his ambition of teaching and has encouraged young and old to observe and understand the sky, especially while teaching science, computing and geography at a local school. Indeed, it was at that school where he showed the children at his science club how to make a human orrery and demonstrated the construction of an orrery from bits and pieces found around the house. His fascination with the orrery led to the research that forms the foundation of this book. His passion covers not only the infinite, looking through a telescope, but also the infinitesimal, looking through a microscope, and has published articles on tardigrades, robust microscopic animals that can even survive in space. The photography of wildlife is a recent pursuit with the publication of articles and photographs in wildlife magazines. [From page xv of Orrery, published in 2014]
