Re: Restarting my astronomy journey

Haha! Can't afford to retire just yet. KL city center can be quite bad but I live about 37km away, so I suppose it is better out here. Just moved to this new area and still scouting around for an ideal location in this neighborhood. This month is bad - raining every day, no chance to field test my u...

Thanks.
