  8. M33, a first for me!

    i understand what your saying and i do view from home a lot. we only meet up when the forecast is good and we are around new moon. the rest of the time i dedicate my time to my family and i don't go out socializing. my occasional free time is with the mob which isn't as often as we would like
  9. The Sky at Night

    to be honest with you, anything to do with the nightsky on tv is worth watching, but at least you don't moan about it

  14. M33, a first for me!

    i love it when people go to proper dark skys and not ones they claim to be dark because they don't know any better. good hunting mate and clear skies
  15. M33, a first for me!

    what a brilliant topic and congrats furrysocks. go somewhere dark as you are and m33 is brilliant, as estwing(cal) says m101 is stunning in dark skys seeing the HA regions blows your furry socks off and is our transparency indicator
