I got a full score. My Mum got me interested in astronomy when I was old enough, mainly because I have had cerebral palsy nearly all my life, having survived meningitis when I was 1-year-old. Her father, who was born in London in 1862, came to New Zealand around 1880 and his interest developed in the '90s. He died in 1927, almost 21 years before I was born. He founded the astronomical society in the NZ city of Whanganui and had the observatory there constructed for him. It was named in his honour 1n 1932, I think. His name is Joseph Thomas Ward, and the observatory now has an A-listing with Heritage NZ, formally known as the Historic Places Trust. His main interests were cataloguing stars, especially binaries and constructing his own telescopes, the largest of which was a reflector and at the time, was the biggest in the Southern Hemisphere with a mirror of about 22 inches (nearly 56 cm).

I’m embarrassed that I only got six out of nine. That’s what I get for answering these questions at two in the morning.
