Re: WTS : 6-inch Classical Cassegrain

@Traveler... I am probably not coming back to visual astronomy (arm-chair reading and general binocular viewing would be more likely). I will also be giving up photography and will soon put up some items for sale here as well as in ClubSnap. Don't want to stress my eyes too much. In fact, I am going...

Re: Allow unlimited editing in certain posts in the new foru

I second the proposal to allow unlimited edits on the first post. I could not attach photos/files of sale items after I have my pictures done subsequent to the post. I also have not been able to change my post to append the word "SOLD" after my sales have been completed... http://www.singastro.org/f...

Re: EPs, Diagonals, Other Accessories for Sale

Apologies, I have problems uploading Powerpoint files or PDF files that I prepared showing photos of these items. I did that because I cannot upload photos too. And now I can't even edit the original post! So I cannot indicate items on reserved list in the original post anymore. I will have to post ...

Re: Taking a break!

Hey Remus, have a fruitful time in semi-retirement from astronomy. Yes, we have to also enjoy other things before life's natural obstacles get in the way... that's what I am doing now. You will always be on the roll of honour for being among the pioneers who stared Singastro. Cheers!
