Busy day

It started late for me this morning as I was late getting up, this put me behind which in the end turned out fine.

About 0900 I go a call from my friend Peter asking if I could scan so drawing for him. Peter is one of my astronomy friends who uses his eyes and a pencil and paper. I scan his drawing so that he can lecture with Power-point.

I have used three of his drawing just to show how good he is, I wish that some of my images came out like his drawing. Click for the big pictureand don't worry about the meaning written on the image.

Peter uses a six inch telescope from his garden in Rainham, not the best of places.

When I had done Peter's drawing I went shopping and lazed around in the afternoon until it was time to cook dinner.

I then had some fun with the following: a Black Bird that kept hiding, two pests that would not keep still. But I did get them in the end.

That's it folks for another day, I hope to go out with the camera tomorrow

  2. He is Eileen, he make up masters and then adds the detail as he see it. I believe that he has been doing it for around forty years.
