How to carry out multi-station asteroidal occultations - what is a paver mount?

David/Joan Dunham and John Broughton

David and Joan Dunham have been travelling around Australia making occultation observations.  Many of these have been multi-chord asteroidal occultations with unattended stations strategically located across predicted paths.  They have used a range of equipment including some innovative telescope mounting arrangements developed by John Broughton who has also produced some amazing observations.  This talk covers the innovative designs of their equipment and how they put them to use.
