Thanks

Was a long time friend of Patrick Moore, 62, retired last year, with my lump sum I bought an Esprit 120mm triplet, 8" Edge HD Evolution Celestron, 72mm ED and Daystar Quark Ha.

Don't smoke, single father of three disabled sons with Autism, I also am Autistic.

Thanks

Welcome Jeremy,
Great scopes you have esp the 70s one.
Wow what a privilege to be a long time friend of the late Patrick Moore. I remember reading one of his books when i was about 10 years old and that probably cemented my interest in astronomy.
Cheers
Andy

He was a nice chap, down to earth, plain, NOTHING pompous and loved being visited by children

We started Patrick Moore sales, my son and Patrick here are working on his book Ancient Lights he wrote when he was 20 (Patrick)
