My sincerest congrats to Dave as well for his fateful and historic discovery. It is honours well-justified and it could not have happened to someone more worthy!

What great "renumeration" for such dedicated and inspiring work! Gotta confess that Dave's success has me thinking of dedicating time as well to such an endeavour, for we have never had any such discovery (supernova or asteroid) from Greece.

Damien, Were all only scratching the surface and anyone who pretends otherwise is kidding themselves. However I know what you mean. I was there too. If this discovery means anything at all it's that amateurs CAN do this sort of valuable astronomy. So keep at it Damien, persevere and when you run into the wall remember that there are those of us just a little further down the road here to help. You won't find a more helpful bunch of lads and lassies than here.


+1 :) Yes Dave, very True, I myself have been doing a lot of variable star observing and nova hunting for years now, and still no sucess, but hey keep observing, maybe it will come true for you all too some night ;)
