Charles Ennis got his first telescope as a child but when he got involved in a law enforcement career working night shift that interfered with that passion. Charles retired from this career in April 2013, bought a new telescope, and joined the Sunshine Coast Centre of the RASC that August. Within months he became their media director and in December 2014 became President of the SCC. In May 2016 became National Secretary and in 2022/23 served as National President. Charles has served with the Editorial Board and is the author Building a Small Observatory (Published 2016, 2nd edition 2021) and the Solar Observer’s Handbook (published 2017). He’s the editor of the 2nd and 3rd editions of the Explore the Universe Handbook. He’s served on the Fundraising Committee, the Finance Committee, and is coordinator of the Public Speaker’s Program. He’s the cofounder of the Inclusivity and Diversity Committee (2018) and has been doing presentations on the sky cultures of the world since 2017. In June 2021 he founded the World Asterisms Project.
