Wow, what a difficult challenge, when I got nothing remotely connected with astronomy or photography for Crimble.  I guess I could wrap the socks around the flex-tube as a light shield!!

Think I might dust off the barn door for this one, took advantage of the crazy price Curry's did on the 24mm pan cake lens cheaper than second hand so that was our present.
