  1. Don't put yourself down David. I think you've got considerable astro knowlege.
  2. Hi A warm welcome to SGL. Learn and Enjoy
  3. The Dark(er) side of the Moon is the side that does not get any Earthshine. Simple
  4. Don't get your head in a tizz. This is just a theory, developed by humans with 1 point of reference in a vast universe. Like most other theories it will crash and burn, in time.
  5. My first DSO taken at the Spring Galloway Starcamp 27/02/2019. 60 x 60sec exp, ISO 800, Canon 1100d, SW ED80 DS Pro
  6. Arrived home at 3:45 today, after another excellent Galloway Star camp. Saturday night was stunning. Thanks to Mike, Leslie and Ralf for putting this together, and to the other attendees who make the event what it is. Can't wait for February for the next installment.
  7. Yes, We often get well oiled, when it's cloudy. ?
  8. Hello and welcome to SGL
  9. That is your opinion, fair enough. I think that we don't know enough about the physics of the universe to make that judgement.
  10. His physics, that prevailed at that time, bound him to the island, it was too far to swim to the nearest island and there were sharks,until somebody came up with the theory that a dugout canoe would allow them to cross.
  11. The big bang theory has more holes in it than Baldrick's socks
  12. If you believe in the scientific theories that hold sway at present. A caveman living on an island would have thought the same
  13. Maybe we can't find Dark Matter because it doesn't exist? How can we use gravity to show its existence, when we don't understand how gravity works, and therefore don't know if our mathematical equations describing gravity are correct.
