Excellent compilation Jared. Well done for getting the first 40. Profile Flair added.

Perhaps you could do a post telling us about your equipment and techniques?

Regards

Graeme

Sure, I can do that. I’ll make a video of my equipment and my techniques for you all, as it’s hard to just explain.

Doing that requires a clear sky, so it will take some time, As it is cloudy right now.
