Now a member of the London Centre, Blake chairs the national Observing Committee and administers the Backyard and Stellarium training. He is an operator of the David Dunlap Observatory 74-inch reflecting telescope. He likes double stars a lot and has split 1743 pairs to date. Last May, Blake was stationed at Killarney Provincial Park Observatory, in association with the York University Allan I. Carswell Observatory, as the first Astronomer-In-Residence.
