A Lunk of Sanctuary was created by Until_then-Goodnight!
In the year 2268, a Lunk of Sanctuary attacked Spock as he was trying to swim to the shore of Khyming. 

For a moment there tonight I thought I was observing one of these snail like creatures, however it was just a run of the mill snail from planet earth ;)

I've no idea how he got into the scope as the dust cap was on...taking the mirror out provided me with the chance to give it a nice clean though...silver linings and all that, hey!

What an extraordinary event that was, Darren, finding a snail inside your telescope. 
It reminds me of the time when I found the tiniest snail inside an eyepiece. 
This also occurred with the snail buried in under the cap of the eyepiece. 
I was observing the Moon at the time, and I couldn't figure out what was wrong!
Still I had to thoroughly clean the eyepiece before I proceeded. 

I admired your analogy with Spock in Star Trek. 

I have a hectic week coming up. And we are due quite a number of cloudy nights. 
 Maybe by next weekend we will have some clear skies again. 

Very best regards from Aubrey.

Hi Aubrey,

Two weeks since I last posted here - where does the time go?

So, it isn't just me who have found that snails are keen to observers too : )

Clear skies,
Darren.
