Slugs, ewww!


Recommended Posts

Is it just me or is anyone else enjoying the delightful sensation of standing slugs!

Whether it's carrying my scope out or moving round to point in a different direction, there's that moment of rubberyness before the stomach churning squelch. I could almost hurl just thinking about it. The other night I went out with a torch before setting up and collected nineteen of the slimy little devils. I did get a cracking view of M13 without a squelch, so maybe it was worth the effort.

Bring on the cold winter nights and no more slugs!

I haven't stepped on one yet myself but I pressume a slug would be rather slippery, not the best thing to step on if carrying a heavy telescope.. I'm sure it's gone wrong for someone at some point in time.
