  1. I've just been to the optician and found that my eyesight has deteriorated even more and the astigmatism in my right is now 2.0. So, I've decided that I'm going to get a Televie Dioptrx astigmatism correcter lens. Has anyone got a 2.00 or 2.25 Dioptrx for sale? Thanks

  16. I'm hoping to be there. As with others, this will be first (and possibly only) trip away all year . Due to a huge confluence of poo over last year I had completely lost my astronomy mojo.

  17. I have a very slow internet connection. The video just got more and more behind the audio and then everything froze. Had to give up
  18. I have doubts whether sanitizers would kill all viruses on your skin instantly on contact. I suspect it takes a few minutes to have its full effect. With that in mind, it might be worth waiting for a few minutes after using sanitizer before using hand cream.
  19. The news is that unfortunately the site did flood. They are now clearing up the mess.
  20. Lovely shot and nicely framed. Thanks for sharing
