Hey Power's that be!

Sorry Rob and everyone else, I know they're late.
John and Andrew (and myself) have been rather busy with other things and so we're running behind. I'll have them up on Monday morning.
On a related note, we've been tossing around the idea of sharing responsibility, as John is finding it difficult to get the time to do the some of the writeups each month. So if anyone else would like to volunteer to do some of the writeups, please PM me.
Rob, your name came up as someone who may possibly be interested, and also Cosmos from across the tasman as well.

You must have ESP or someone has, as I was about to offer lol
Where do I sign? and a bit of a run down on what needs to be done

I'll get in touch with you via email (PM me your preferred email addy please), and you can start with a couple of the November objects. I'll be away over the Oct/Nov changeover so the Nov MOC will be a little late too.

Congrats Rob......negotiate a high Salery from the start.....see if Mike can even throw in a company car.
08-10-2005, 10:55 AM

Wow! salery!!!! I like that.... ummmm two patatoes, a tomatoe and three banannas. with bonuses like a can of bake beans for on time assignments :ashamed:
Car? hell just give me petrol vouchers, in about 6 months they'll be worth more than most cars :rofl:

sorry for being a pushy o'l fella, anyways I guess I get to know how it feels
being on the MOC team. I hope my help will eleviate some of those responsibilities.

This one immediately got my attention, So I tracked them down last night, I
love multiple galaxy views, this one fits snuggly in my 14mm XW FOV. It's a
pity the moon is starting to get in the road. Looking forward to sketching it.

Will try to get the MOC's up today, though I've got a pretty busy day with lots of meetings. If not today, tomorrow morning for sure.

David, I didn't gat a chance to chase down Rho Ophiuchi, but I did get a look
in at the Coathanger, with the best view of that was through the finderscope.
Must look excellent through Bino's

$$$$$$ + Car = Hobby oh wow :rofl: Never happen! ;)
car = money pit... :(
anyhow... I had a thought. is the MOC late because of well time involved? or it a cae of coming up with new and exciting objects? do you guys need "members input" or sugestions? :confuse3:
just throwing around ideas...
if its just a time issue then tell me (pollitely) to pull my head in :P
10-10-2005, 11:03 PM
It does :poke:
I've been going back to M15 quite quite a bit the last month or two: it really is a dandy of a Glob!
10-10-2005, 11:59 PM
Shhhhhhhh! Houghy... or they'll make me sign one of them workplace agreements and I'll lose me tin of bake beans :ashamed:
Jim, lil wee M15?? you call that a glob? we call it a disturbance :rofl:
11-10-2005, 12:43 AM
Umm - everything about you is disturbing :poke:
Irregardless of size, I just really like the texture and structure of it: easily one of my favorites! :D
11-10-2005, 01:40 AM
How did you know that? :shrug: :ashamed:
I was checking out M17 & M16 the other night for the first time in I dont
remember how long. You can easily forget in the pursuit of other things to
go back and look over what you have already seen. I must of spent a couple
of hours marveling at them, wondering why I hadn't come back sooner. Infact
I'm about to head out and check out M1 another I haven't in awhile. Mars is
looking good too, not quite good enough to image though :ashamed:
11-10-2005, 09:22 AM
yes mike, member input if you need it, maybe a list of what has been listed over the last 12 months.
maybe a rotating member task, say that Decembers 5 objects are to be compiled by asimov with his comments, January by me, Feb by ving etc.
Share the load guys if you need the help.
(hmmmmm now what object is so far south that only the tassie boys can see??????)
12-10-2005, 06:06 AM
They're up (http://www.iceinspace.com.au/index.php?id=69,241,0,0,1,0).
Sorry they're so late.
Just in time for the lunar challenge though!
12-10-2005, 06:48 AM
Cool! thanks Mike :thumbsup:

btw incase noone noticed (*cough* hoffy), i've separated the reports/sketches and images into their respective forums again.
I noticed a distinct drop off of imaging submissions once they were combined. The reports and sketches have been going great guns, so let's hope that continues and let's hope there's a resurgance of images posted again! Itchy has got us off to a great start!
