Many congratulations David! That discovery is just reward for all your hard work and dedication. I noticed on a circular that it was magnitude 17.6!

Clear skies and may those discoveries continue rolling in!

I was driving into work especially early today and heard on he headlines at 7am that an Irish astronomer had discovered something new. I figured that since I've done bugger all recently, there could only be one culprit :-) Unfortunately, I missed actual news item but I got the RTE web piece.

The fact that Dave could add to the SN knowledge pool (and will undoubtedly continue to do so) is pretty much a done deal at this stage and a testament to many years of hard work, strong cups of tea and pure dedication. For me, the most remarkable aspect is that fact that it was done with a home-made telescope. Extraordinary. And I have to say, looking at the discovery image, it looks like a cracker of a scope.

Dave - your perseverance, dedication and attention to detail is amazing. You truly are a credit to Irish Astronomy and I for one am so proud of and for you. Many, many congratulations.

All I need now to top the perfect day is a Newcastle win ;-)

Dave

Looking forward to the details, Dave.

Small request, purely for my own interest, could you fix your link to your equipment list when you get back to earth? ;)

I get a 404 when I try to follow it.

Dave if you continue at this rate there will be nothing left for the rest of us poor mortals.
Just amazing, well done and well deserved.
