Just curius what other stuff do you guys get up to when your not doing astronomy/weather/photography?

For Me;

Football - Play 5 a side twice a week.  At least it keeps me in some sort of shape.  Also support Arsenal and go to see them a couple of times a year.
Aviation Sims.  I fly historical aircraft in online war simulations such as IL2 Forgotten Battles.  I'm part of a virtual RAF squadron (No.56 Sqn Firebirds).  We meet online twice a week.
Computers:  My day job which extends into a hobby too.
Electronics:  I like to dabble and invent/break/blow up stuff.

I'll answer for Carl O'Beirnes too;  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

Fintan,

The way I look at it is, theres nothing I can do about the weather, so I just wait until the clear skies arrive.  When they do I take advantage.  There's so much more to astronomy that just being out with the scope.  For example I spend endless hours dreaming up astro gadgets to build, writing computer software and just generally dreaming about the whole subject area.  And of course talking to like minded individuals.

Very nice image indeed John.  What was the equipment used?

Martin,

I saw W1 from Greece last week while it was a little higher from there.  Very nice comet indeed.  I thought the coma looked decidedly fan shaped.

Hi Guys,

Congrats on forming this forum.

I look forward to posting here regularly.  Nice to see a forum with a relaxed attitude without being overly so.
