To tell my Son what happened in the train I sent him an email linking direct to the story (the things people say thread) about me hearing the ladies in the train .. he had not been here and had never seen the avatar.. he commented "I suppose you could hear them with those big ears you have grandma" had to laugh he got me.

Me And My Scope

This is my setup as you can see the STL-11000M is hanging of the scope on a G11 mount. Finally got someone to take a photo of myself. I am the one that takes all the photos.

hello everyone
I am glad to be here with such a fine group of people with the same burning desire.
below is a photo of myself at the 7 inch Meade APO, It is one of two very fine systems that I have use of. I also have a 15 inch F5 newtonion, both are very nice telescopes but i am in a very light polluted location and it really limits what I can do.
I really hope we can share techniques and methods in the field of CCD astrophotography and a funny story or two.

Great set-up Mark, and you are most welcome here. Great to have you on board.

That's an amazing dome and array of equipment.

Keep posting, so we can get to know you

Nice photos Ispom, It's good to see that some things are the same all over the world. A BBQ, a beer and a night at the telescope


cheers

Post a pic...

Just another day at the office. Me and my trusty assistant at work in the Australian Alps - I'm the pretty one on the left.

Also, my brute of a scope (114x900 reflector, motorised Alt-Az mount, adapted 2-speed electric focuser, NexImage, GSO 2x Barlow + lots of other plastic junk). Aperture what??!!

Cheers -

Rob

That's a lovely picture of you two Sonia.

Ispom, you'd be right at home here in Australia.

Er about the family shot I left out two wives and another daughter (8years)..but its the little one in the centre I would like you all to notice...my first grand child.. I know I look far too young to even be a father but there you go
Byron Bay is the most Easterly point in Australia..Tabulam is West of that..inland between Casino(East) and Tenterfield (West)... 29 degrees South by 152 east approx... if you look at a map you will see a bend like a horse shoe in the Rocky river..I am on the North Bank..
MMMM frying sausages is there no better sport... I like to boil them a bit first before they go on the bar be que..
All these photos tell me we have a very nice bunch here...all movie stars in their own right no doubt of that..

if I emigrate sometime, then to Australia.
Particularly in the winter I wish myself that.
I hate the winter.
