Seen at Bundaberg airport – a retrospective plaque about the RAAF Station in WW II, taken on our trip to Lady Elliot Island.

The next photo will have “Something mesmerising” in it.

Cheers

Who has a shot of this cloud---Astroman?
Sorry HOughy, that's not quite a lenticular. A lenticular cloud is a lens shaped cloud, generally formed when wind passes over a hill and the air is raised causing condensation. They often look like a circular lens (hence the name) or a flying saucer (the UFO kind, not crockery! ). They sometimes appear in lines where the air oscillates up and down through the condensation layer after being disturbed by the hill.

I have taken at least 2 photos of lenticular clouds... really I have... I just can't find them at the moment to post (and now I'm at work anyway - but I was looking for them last night in case no one had one).

But a cloud of lentils shows good lateral thinking skills!!!

I can't remember when we last pulled out a book. We just seem to shove more in there because we can't think of a better place.

Just a quick question UniPol. Are those Coronado EPs just GSO-style plossls with gold plated housings? "

Hi Steve, They certainly look like GSO EP's but from what I have read they are supposed to have enhanced coatings to suit the PST's and Solarmax scopes. Apparently they are good on nebulae etc. I haven't used them as yet owing to work commitments but when time becomes available I'll write up a little review.

I must apologise for the the use of the big word "Portentous", probably because I'm a schoolteacher. The Collins dictionary gives three meanings :

1. Momentous or ominous significance.
2. Miraculous, amazing or awe inspiring.
3. Self-important or pompous.

Hope this inspires someone with the next pic

Cheers,

Steve

The Best

This is the best I have to date. Unfortunatly I can't find the original print not so this is a photo of a photocopy. In the original you can see the feathers on the head but the wings are just blurred.

A few years back Tony and I were the leaders at the annual Stargazers week up at O'Reilly's Guest house. Just wonderful times we had, even when cloudy.

The next photo will have worst shot that you tried really hard to get but didn't.

Not just a picture from the mirror.
