The return

I am not sure where to post this but I guess General Chat is the place?

Anyhow I recently joined this forum but the truth be told I have been here before. Back in the day, perhaps 15 years ago I was known by the handle of "Mickoking. "

A serious amount of water has passed since I was Mickoking. I lived in different countries, tried different jobs. Got divorced and married and struggled with mental health and alcoholism.

Even in my darkest moments, even when my mind wasn't on the stars or planets. I always had a telescope and a few eyepieces to keep me grounded. Now that I am in a better place I will rejoin this fine forum and engage in the subject Ihave been interested in for over 40 years;


Astronomy.

Good on you Mick and welcome back Hopefully it's darkish at your location. No such luck down here in Melbourne, but fun all the same.

Best
JA

I have found a patch of backyard where the dreaded streetlights don't reach. This few square metres of bliss will be my observatory.
