What I found mildly amusing about the episode on Sunday evening was the pointing of telescopes at the sun in daylight, when for years Sir Patrick has warned time and again about the dangers of looking directly at the sun with the naked eye, such a during eclipses, and also through binoculars too. Yet here they all were pointing a telescope straight at it! Not sure I heard any warnings? Okay so they had a filter across the lens, but might some people be tempted to use something not suitable and endanger their eyesight?

The mirth of the group at the end rather bemused me. What was that all about? I must have missed something.

Rodney I think your post #160 was excellent and especially the stamps idea.
