....When I got back to the house I realised how stupid I'd been when a great photographic oppertunity of Venus and Jupiter was there without leaving the comfort of the house.[:D]
Regards Les.

Nice, at least the ground will be frozen hard, much better than sinking upto your oxters in liquid mud.

Guess what, it's +5C here, and pouring down....

Hey Les..

I always find images and viewing from indoors quite interesting...

We have a huge south facing glazed gable on our house (for passive solar gain) and the moon is a regular treat from the inside...

We also watched Perseids this year from INSIDE--lights out of course!
