  1. So regret selling my LS60. So much so that I’m soon gonna be in the market for an LS80 with B1200.
  2. Doug you need to take a leaf out of my book and combine that glass of red or in my case Captain Morgan's and combine it with a lunar session. You will feel almost Armstrong, like you are actually there, especially if you have a Questar. Mmmmm

  10. Absolutely, dark nights and crispy cold ones at that make great viewing. Look after that flu and get better soon. I’ve just realised who you are. Cloudy nights ?
  11. Telescope curses are real. Let's get that out of the way first. It's not coincidence or bad luck etc etc that you can have a week of clear sky, then cloud, wind and rain, it's a flipping curse. That said i was heading to work on a night shift with my new Questar sitting in it's posh little case on the back seat and tonight the weather was behaving itself. Luckily i didn't need the beautiful Tristand as there is a rather convenient picnic bench on the lawn in front of the office. (God bless BT) so that was rather handy. After work had died down a bit and it got to around 10pm i g

  13. Yes i was getting excited by the opposition however dust storms put paid to that and it didn’t turn into the show I had expected.
