Hi Everyone...

As we all know, times are though and money is tight everywhere. It is just a shame to hear
that NASA has cut funding to the work Rob McNaught does at Siding Spring and the ANU in
Canberra and the Australian Government is hesitant to pick up the rather small bill.


After having seen the short video report and the state of Robs gear one can only wonder.
On the other side, Rob is really on of those guys that do an amazing job and hardly make
the headlines.

If I had the funds I'd pay for it...

Cheers from down under
