Thierry Pauwels (1958– ) is an astrometrist at the Royal Observatory at Uccle {see planet  (1276)}. He became interested in the study of minor planets and successfully restored the Uccle Schmidt (85/120/2.20), extending its limiting magnitude by installing a CCD camera in 1996. Several discoveries have now been attributed to him. (M 48156)
