Hi Annie. Nice sharp moon shot. Your part of the UK is more devoid of light pollution than mine. I had a very good friend who lived at Dalwhinny on the bank of Loch Ericht, the night sky was so unbelievably clear. He then bought a house on the bank of West Loch Tarbet, again unbelievable clear skies - and lots of wildlife too.
My moon shots were a not really presentable - too much cloud cover. :-(

Thanks. It clouded over here later so didn't see the Blood Moon at all even though i got up to have a look. Next time is in 10 years :lol:

London calling Australia. Come on you Aussies down under with your 100-400 mkIIs. If you are near Adelaide what about posting a picture of Matthew Flinders statue. He is topical with us at the moment because they think they have excavated his long lost resting place.
Edit. They use Flinders balls (and a bar) for magnetic compass correction.

I haven't noticed any Adelaideans posting here Ray (I'm 2000 miles away from there). If there are any, their lenses may have melted yesterday; Adelaide hit a balmy 46.6C (115.9F) as measured in a standard Stevenson screen.

Thanks Pippan. I thought L series lenses were grey to reflect the heat?
It was a a-hearted comment but I thought it could raise some interest or competition.
I had a Stevenscreen in my garden a few years ago. I have stopped using it but still have a good collection of weather instruments, with both mercury and aneroid barometers (Kew and Fortin) and barographs if you are interested. I could tell you a tale of the collapse of a Stevenson screen sometime, but it was in my school days and might bore the pants off everyone.
Regards

This post is sure to make anyone familiar with American political history do a double take. :lol:

Is there some indication of nepotism being referred to here?:-)
Good night, see you tomorrow.

Too much weight of snow? I'm familiar with those instruments. I took the official weather observations at Uluru for the second half of the '90s. The last few days there were a fair bit hotter than any I observed.

Weight of snow? That would have been easy to explain. A classmate and myself were clowning around in the upper floor gym store when he hurled a bloody great medicine ball at me. I side-stepped. The medicine ball went clean through the open window behind me and into the quadrangle outside, home to the treasured Stevenson Screen weather station. A direct hit - bits of weather station everywhere. Punishment - Six of the very best and an hours extra maths every night for a week. Our head took no prisoners, but unlike today, he was respected.
Oh sorry! I’ve run off topic. I’ll post a 100-400L II picture soon.

The comma makes all the difference.

Pity iPhones weren't invented for another 60 years. The GIF would have gone viral!

So does sentence construction. For many years, I thought that Mammoths were armed, and all because my teacher told me, "Early men hunted mammoths armed with spears."
