Hello from Paul in Torquay

Hi everyone.

Enjoyed last night's talk re:History of Deep Sky Observing - most interesting.

I hope to get up to the NLO for some of your events but as I work some evenings on a somewhat variable rota, I'll not make all by any means.

Main activity is Lunar imaging. I use a 127mm f/11.8 Maksutov/Cassegrain with a compact digital camera (Fuji L55) mounted "afocally". The usual technique is to capture a video clip of the desired area, then process the video frames through Registax.

Hope to see you all soon.

Paul
