  1. I do find it quite satisfying recording each session. It always feels like a nice way to end and evening outside. I haven't made any excel spreadsheets yet.... But you never know...
  2. Fantastic drawing! Love the detailed shading
  3. Sounds very handy! And that EP looks like a BEAST
  4. From one Norfolkan to another, welcome

    Another very impressive sketch Mike.
  6. Sounds like a nice session! Interesting read...
  7. Very nice sketch Mike. Great detail
  8. It's always a great feeling grabbing an object you've tried hard to see... Winter skies, no moon ... Who knows what might pop up Well done
  9. I use the Olymous10x50s more than any other astro equipment. The clarity under dark skies is fantastic. Although the 8x40s are lighter and give a wider FOV I find that the extra 10mm really helps pick out those fainter objects.
  10. Very nice session with some great targets! Good read
  11. Fantastic sketch! I would be chuffed with that !
  12. I guess many people suffer this way. I suppose you could take a couple of positives... You do have a great scope and you can get away to rural locations. With a bit of planning and some degree of luck and determination, you'll get there. I've got the opposite, rural skies, 80mm scope I guess your using a decent light pollution filter? Good luck with the rest of the challenge!
  13. Achim, Very nice sketch! You captured some great detail Marj
  14. Back in 2004, 2029 seemed like such a long way away...
  15. Another good read, Thanks, And a nice review of what looks like a pretty good chair
