I've saved it to read later - should be good. Thank you :D My education was in science and engineering so had a basis from any early age. My grandfather was interested in astronomy and I learnt quite a lot from him. Also read a number of books and been an avid watcher of "The Sky At Night" with Sir Patrick Moore.

Yes, I think that the link is broken.  What a shame, it sounds good.

Great stuff. Thanks. It may be a very old post but it's still fresh for me.

I keep learning; the trick now is retaining ...
