Hello Derek!

Where you were? Welcome back!

Very nice nature photos. We all missed them.

Thanks.

I am so glad to see you back Derek, I was getting worried. I was just at the point of e-mailing to check you were OK. I have missed your dawn shots and these are exceptional as usual :bow :hamster:

I am wondering, were we viewing the Moon at the same time time or did you see the first half and I saw the second half at sunset? Here was my bad view sideways through double glazing from the bedroom window (less than 7 degrees above the horizon) so pretty poor images, but the Moon looked fabulous. I was wondering who else would be looking

Heya Derek! Good to see you here again. Lovely shots as always! Not many stars to be seen in the centre of Sydney then I guess?

Welcome back, Derek. Like everyone else, I’ve missed your reports from Oz.

Beautiful images: Sun, Moon and the opera house.

I was out for a visual look at the lunar eclipse only; no pics.
