  3. HI Phill stay with it. Know how you feel, I had a detached rettina in 1989.Mine had gone past where they could use a laser on it, so they at to operate on the retina its self, which left me with my pupil jammed open. Took me a long time to get back observing , but observing l am and you will be as well so keep your chin up, and remember we're all with you. Clear skies phillc

  14. My wife seems to be with most of the other wives. Eg is supportive, will buy me gifts to do with astronomy as presents, as even suggested getting me a eight inch Dobsonian for Christmas and might look at the Moon or planets for a few minutes, but that is as far as it goes. The rest of the the time l'm left on my own to observe in peace or with like minded friends.And that suits me as we do a lots of other things in each others company. phillc
  15. I usually view from September to May and in those months any clear nights that turn up, even if only for an hour or two. Clear nights are so scarce in this county you have to grab them when you can. In the Summer months i study the Moon, and hope to try and start sketching it this year. phillc
