Problem is that the dog is taking far too much interest in my new hat...better keep it in a safe place away from him me thinks!!!

Some celestron 20x80 binoculars. Woo!

Any ideas why I can see two images? I have to close an eye to see anything properly.

Astro-wise:

A telrad for my shiny new 10" flextube dob, a furry flappy hat that makes me look like an extra in "Fargo", an amazing-but-true instant activate handwarmer, and a "wonders of the solar system" DVD.

Other-wise: A remote-control helicopter that's freaking out our cats, The Stewart Lee book and 4 bottles of port :-)

No idea - a few little packets - I'm going to have Din-Dins in about an hour before opening - have had three glasses of Sainsbury's bog standard Sherry so far. Oh Quest 6pm tonight Big Biggest Bigger is the ISS. Deeply funny 'The Americans use the same spec as us but to different tollerances that's why we are having the problems' Rob

Astro related: Stardust observing chair from USA. More specifically, permission to buy this item myself ("why doooo you need 2 observing chairs ??").

Non astro stuff of note: Talisker Malt Whisky

Non astro stuff not of note: .... the usual stuff, being shot in the face by my kid's toy gun

Merry Christmas to all

A book put together by the editors of APOD with a photo and description for each day of the year.

Another book called 'Stargazing Yearbook 2011'.

Another one called 'Stargazing in 2011'.

A DVD called 'The complete cosmos'.

Lots of sweets and chocolates!
