Hello all, I'm from Australia like Uglyguy9 and also like him, I love astronomy too. I have an 8" reflector, but don't take it out as much as I'd like to. I would love to have a permanent peir in a rolltop shed for my setup. Not ideal in a rental . I have other hobbies, besides astronomy. I have an R/c heli and a monster truck, I play computer games and also dabble in static models too, but haven't got a portfolio to speak of! So far I've been more of a collector of card projects. :mrgreen: My love of the computer classic Homeworld 1 & 2 started me off. My newest obsession is Eve Online, the Scifi MMORPG. More about me, I am a CAD drafter, with a focus on building services (HVAC, lighting, power/data), but I really want to branch into residential buidling design. I am married to Amanda for 8 years and currently live in Tasmania. As you can well imagine, she is a very understanding wife! Thanks for having me.
