Well deserved.

Thanks guys, that was taken at the start of a very fun evening down at the American Folk Park near Omagh through Brian Beesley's Solarscope 60 (not as I said an 80). Same setup as the one I put in for the Calendar. It seems to be very easy to get good single shot images using the combination of Brian's scope and my Lumix G6 camera.

Thanks Roy! Actually I got a better one using the same setup (Brian Beesley's excellent Solascope 60 and my Lumix G6 camera) in October. That one is in the IFAS Calendar.
