    Too bad Tom but I'm glad that you are on the mend. Here's to getting well and getting back out under those night skies!

    Yikes, Tom, you really know how to get our attention. Take care of yourself and don't push harder than you should. Pneumonia is bad enough but with broken ribs on top of it? Ouch! Maybe it's time to take some binos out for a spin

    That sounds like a terrible mess, Tom!
    I sure hope you are feeling better by now! And I´m not going to complain about my cough and runny nose any more

    Hi Tom. And it's great to have you back among us again. The broken bones ribs call for a sedated breathing spell, so I hope that you made through this ok, and the best of wishes for many clear skies looking forward ahead to many more great DSO images soon.
