Here's one taken today which we're using on the Macarthur Astronomical Society website to promote our up-coming "m a g n i t u d e" event at the Campbelltown Art Centre October 4th-9th. Speakers on the final Saturday will be David Reneke and David Malin. Images on the wall are from fellow MAS member, Humayun Qureshi "Octane", and will be shown amongst nearly sixty others as well as 45 original Voyager 2 photographs from the Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL) in California.

Well, it seems I have no recent photos that aren't completely ridiculous, so here's a completely ridiculous one. I thought better of the picture of me doing ironing, it's a tad risque

Oh, right, I'm the one being strangled.

Very nice. If I may ask a silly question: what is the white plastic pipe about? Part of a frame for a sun/rain cover?

BTW I'm always struck by how much scenery in Sth Africa can look like Oz. Even the grass is the same shade of 'green'.

It is the bottom ring of a portable "observatory" that I put together.
Works a treat and stood up to some serious winds too.

The photo was taken at a star party in the middle of the Karoo which is arid semi-desert.

Ahh, very nice, but I see it WON'T keep the Lyons out!

See what I did there? Works on so many levels
