Not had a chance to do much astronomy in ages, the new workshop/shed was leaking so had to spend time sealing it to save the scope from going rusty. Painted the floor with garage floor paint while moving everything around in a confined space is no fun either!

Hopefully won't be long until I can get the scope out again, in the mean time I note there have been developments with the ISS and Plutoids among other things.

Bought a NASA DVD set which shows almost the whole footage of the Apollo 11 mission including a lengthy countdown sequence to the launch.

Some of which can be seen on youtube here........
