I know a bit about eyepieces and refractors😃..but would I also need to learn about weird things like " ship's funnels", "sensors", "chips" and other "wired up stuff"??:icon_scratch:😱🤭

But seriously, FLO are offering a wonderful job for someone to do their hobby for a living, and I'm sure there will be a large queue to lodge applications. Good luck!👍

Maybe this is what a job share was invented for, Dave?

This would have been my perfect job but retire soon, all the best to those that apply.

Sounds great! Maybe in future if the chance arises... I ditch the day job in the near future.

Just retired, 40+yrs in IT support and project management with electronics and some engineering, 5-6 yrs hobbyist in Astro, but never really been able to set up and keep a rig due weather issues primarily.

shame, it could be a nice way to occupy my time if I knew enough in the astro filed

Had I known back when Steve posted this what my future held then I would have been very likely to have applied.  But that's the way the croissant crumbles, as someone once said.

Indeed.  No regrets.  Have to move on and see what comes next.  I might make a fortune shipping dehydrated water to places affected by serious drought.  Who knows?

I remember seeing the on Tomorrow World some time ago, just put the tablet into a tap, and out came the water.

Always wondered what happened to that idea.

oops shouldn't have posted that comment in public searchable pages, but yeah, same boat myself it seems...

Not that I think I'd have been a fit for this one, too new to pointing bits of shaped glass at the stars and all that 🙂
