Nah, my shoulders are trashed, specially the right one...so far at least, the only war wound from the years of moving crazy heavy stuff would have thought my hips and back would have been grumbling by now, was certain things like carrying 800lbs, 100m, was going to come back and haunt me..? but luckily not yet, ..but means my shoulders ache and I cant throw anything over arm and there is significantly reduced power using my right hand/arm = no chance of a pushup, let alone an arm wrestle

Anyway, sorry for the digression Mel...viva la 24" hope to see it one day

Mike

Hoping for good health to you.

Nah, no need to apologise. I hope to be able to bring it out to do some viewing with and hopefully can organise a catch up the near future.

Bobby and I are great friends.

I realise life is going by so quickly and need to focus on the stuff that brings enjoyment aka Astronomy and Telescopes.

I am working on the another SDM but still not sure on what to do - thinking either a 20-22" binoscope or just a 32" scope. Its more a long term plan when I can get a place to house all the scopes and get setup properly.

I hope the injury doesn't hamper you day to day activities.

Lol, thanks Bobby - too kind. I would say its the other way in your generosity and willingness to take the time to spend time with me . I always enjoy the conversations we have and super appreciative .

Till next we speak

Thanks Alan.

The only issue I am finding is time between work and family commitments to get the scope out more.
