sorry laterus, you will have to do something rather drastic to become a "rough" head like the rest of us. Iceman is a "pretty" boy, but for the rest of us....well, were ugly!!!

but as they say , you will shine like a rose between the nasty thorns at a star party!

hey, we are the only three that matter.

no matter what anyone else says:

ving is the lord of the double star;
rocket is the lord of the camera;
i am lord of "full of crap"

you will love the forum, lots of fun, and fantastic for all levels. Beginners are always taken under the wings and the new members that are experienced astronomers have great peers to swap techniques.
