Australian amateur astronomer John Broughton (1952– ) received a Shoemaker NEO grant in 2002 and accidentally discovered the PHA 2004 GA1 using a 0.5-m telescope he had just recently completed. He has also originated techniques for rigorous timing of minor-planet occultations from CCD drift exposures. (M 53176)
