  5. Listening to ‘Oumuamua

    Think you have it, John. Clarke it is. 👍
  6. Listening to ‘Oumuamua

    As I wrote, I can’t remember. Carl Sagan?
  7. Listening to ‘Oumuamua

    Can’t properly attribute this, but there are two possibilities: ‘we are either alone in the universe or we are not. Each is equally terrifying’. Nuff said. 😳😳
  8. International Santa Sleigh (ISS)

    Aw come on, Neil! You were just too excited thinking about Santa ... 😈
  9. Observing session with 15x70 Binos and Heritage 130P

    In the spirit of ‘the season’ - Oh no it wasn’t ! 🤡🤡
  10. Other eye protection

    You could even close the lid on your non-viewing eye? 😈 Seriously, as Stu writes, you’re maybe worrying too much. p.s. I bought a tube of sunblock in 1984 ... and still have half left.

    Welcome. A lovely ‘starter scope’, indeed! Your take on things is spot on, Grizwold; ain’t no hurry. The learning curve is a large part of the fun, I find. (Sorry, am finding.) 🙂
  12. Solar glasses dangers

    Aw man! Dave, that’s a real downer. He’s a lovely guy, as we’ve discussed before, and doesn’t deserve that. Common sense is being bred out. 😤😖😡
  13. erect image diagonal

    I use a Baader 2” erecting prism for lunar. I just prefer to see a correct image on the Moon. Quite happy with L/R switch on stars, etc., but I want the Moon to appear in my eyepiece the way it does when I look at it without a scope. Any degradation is minimal and doesn’t impinge on my observing experience - in fact, the correct image enhances the experience.
