Guess what a fellow Astro friend lent me to try out?

He lent me his Phil Dyer video camera with bits & pieces to try out. He bought it last year so he could use it at outreach events with his club Leicester Astronomy Club. The first time he tried it it he forgot the remote for his laptop, which had one of his Dads Army DVD’s in which he couldn’t eject so it kept playing! He frantically phoned his wife saying you’ll have (note the word have not will you please? ;-)) to bring the remote. Even though she was feet up watching a good film she dutifully took it to him!
Funny thing was he said, people were more interested in Dad’s Army than images of the night sky!!
