New Telescope!


279:366 – The Moon

Mexborough & Swinton Astronomical Society has a new telescope – a Takahashi TOA-130. Mounted on the Software Bisque Paramount it’s a formidable combination, and last night even darting between the clouds I could see objects I would never have dreamed of finding on that sort of night.

Sadly, the evening was spoilt slightly by someone’s snide remarks about me “only rejoining the society because they have a new scope”. So 9 years in a band rehearsing most Thursday nights has nothing to do with me not being around for years then?
