Finally Time to Say Hi!

Recommended Posts

Azbec    11

Greetings all! I've been lurking on SGL for over two years. Thought I should finally break my radio silence.

I'm Azbec - a Software Support Engineer & Volunteer Lifeboat Crewman who has been involved in this wonderful hobby for nearly three years.

I have a profound hatred of LED streetlamps, especially since the council decided to install one outside of my house.

I have a great love for planetary nebulae since first spotting M27 in my first scope: a cheap 70mm SW frac.

Since then, I have upgraded to a 4" GOTO Refractor, and plan on further upgrading to a 10" Dob prior to SGLSP 2017.

I look forward to meeting some of you there!

Welcome! I lurked for quite a while as well, but it's been great fun joining in and being more active. 

Hope you enjoy your time here :biggrin:

Hello, and a warm welcome from a former long-time lurker  from Germany ----  I've found out, it's much more fun to participate actively here!

Congrats to your 10" dob; it'll give you years of observing pleasure.

Hi and welcome from the otherside of the Thames.

I am a sailor and lifeboat supporter ( River Crouch ) visit Whitstable often as Mother in law's house is there.

Hope the only time I see you at sea is to assist :) 

Nige.

Let's hope so, Nige! We often pick up radio comms between Burnham Lifeboat and Dover CG from our station.

Thanks again everyone for your kind words of welcome!
