  1. Cheers all for the usually warm SGL welcome back.
  2. City.....also like Royston Vasey! As I always say to the kids at our school when I challenge them about being muppets for supporting United....and they refuse to back down .......well done. Changing your footy team is like changing your mum.
  3. SGL is like Royston Vasey......you'll never leave
  4. Cheers Dave Hope your van is still going?
  5. Moderating already! (Myself) I seem to have created two identical threads so I merged them LOL
  6. Cheers guys. Great to be back
  7. Cheers Kerry. I made the bold move of taking all my scopes down to the obs so they are ready - although there's still the odd bag of sand/cement in there - working on a pond at the end of the garden!
  8. Well I have been busy for a couple of years with a business studies degree, creating a lovely garden, making an observatory (almost finished bar the painting and fitting my mount) etc and of course work and a family. Oh, yeah and (probably contracting) COVID-19! However, the talk (even on the TV for goodness sake) of a decent comet has given me the impetus to dust things off and have a look again. Looking forward to getting going again and posting on the forum again. Hope everyone is keeping safe and looking after themselves. Cheers Shane

  10. The weather forecast here in Stockport was terrible with rain most of the day so I didn't even bother with a scope. However, just before lunchtime it started to clear in short patches so I drove home to get my gear, timing it so I got back to work for 12.30 and with about 15 minutes left of my lunch. I am glad I did as for about 30 seconds, and just as I put in my second eyepiece into the binoviewer, the sky cleared enough to see part of the transit and then clammed up again. It was worth it though.
  11. The most scary thing I used to hear was my cat scrabbling up the fence. Got me every time. The most horrible thing I saw was a slug on my beer, thankfully spotted before I put it to my mouth.!
  12. Well I made the door but not fitted yet. In between the amazing rugby and a Halloween party it's been a busy weekend.......... I'm supposed to be Georgie out of the film It. However I seem to resemble more Brian Cox after a weekend bender.
