Cheers Brian.

Yeah I caught your mug a couple of pages back too. Funny how you can never pick a persons face from just talking to them 'ey. Suprises you when you finally see them cause you think wow that's totally different to what I pictured in my mind.

Gpz's are classic mate. Real blast from the past there. Haven't seen too many around for a while now. Gonna share some picks of it?

Cheers
Simmo

Raining, so I take pictures of myself and gear

Hi,

It is cloudy and raining for several days and more expected; however in light of recent dry spell and bush fires in Sydney I am pleased.

Pictures are my imaging gear, my little poodle Buffy and me.

Cheer
David

Introducing myself

Hello to all,

I am new to his forum. My name is Harro (44) and I live down under (as seen from your perspective), in the Netherlands.
Like the most of you I also have a livelong attraction to the starry skies. Furthermore I can get very enthousiastic about building telescopes from surplus materials. Starting with LEGO and carton-rolls in the seventies, but using steel, aluminum and pyrex nowadays.
My pride and joy is a lightweight 16 inch Dobson with an integrated Poncet-platform.
Recently, I also co÷perated in the development of the iphone-app Darkskymeter.
In the past I have been quite active at the Dutch Astroforum.nl.

My first contact with Ice in Space was 6 years ago: when looking for inspiration for Dobson-projects, I stumbled upon the wonderful minimalistic telescopes of your forum-member Alan Scott.

The reason I have registered for the Australian Ice in Space-forum is the following:
My sister is living in the hills west of Brisbane. We are planning to visit her in 2015 (We=my wife and two kids).
This will be my first visit to the southern hemisphere, so I will be confronted with new and unexplored views of the heavens. I hope this forum can act as a starting guide in this.
Maybe there will be possibilities to visit some Australian starparties. Or maybe explore the possibilities to borrow a telescope.
Anyway: I would like to arrive a kind of prepared for some astronomical adventures in the summer (your winter!) of 2015.

Best regards

Harro Treur

Must be time for an updated pic - the beard is getting greyer

Hiking a trail in Northern Israel on a lovely winter's day - yes it's a selfie

Then my first astronomy expedition with an invited group of work colleagues - high up above the Jordan Valley - in Spring

Great to hear from you Eric.
Nice pics, were you hiking up near Mt Hermon?
Good to see your first astro expo, would've been lovely there above the Jordan Valley in Spring !
Stay safe mate.
