So nice to hear from you again Pete, we were all worried something might have happened to you.

 

Sorry to hear about your depression and cataracts, as you say something an astronomer can do without, but I'm sure once they are operated on, you will feel much better. 

 

As for bee keeping talk to Rusty Strings he keeps bees.

 

As I said nice to hear from you and don't be a stranger, you have loads of friends here.

Hi Pete, great to hear from you again. 

I am really sorry that you you have been through the mill with cataracts and depression, I hope the cataract op goes well and you get usable vision back. I also hope you are getting the correct help with your depression too, I have been through it and I am never sure if a cure is entirely possible.  The NHS may sadly not be in a position to offer the help you might need, but finding a Councillor on my own really helped, it was almost a light switch moment. 

The garden looks magnificent and regarding night vision, give me a shout, I have made a homebrew black light (940nm) IR night vision and it works up to over 100m away. Not in really full high def, but certainly usable.

All the best Pete.

Hope all goes well for you.  You are missed on the forum for your advice and encouragement.  The pond looks fantastic and I find being more involved with the local wildlife is so rewarding.

Nice to hear from you. I can totally get your depression. I get it myself and have a few short/medium term issues that aren't going away in a hurry. I find astronomy helps me, as long as I don't wind myself up too much by trying for the perfect shot. As most of you know, I am somewhat financially challenged but am aware that some of the kit I have fills a nice niche that other peoples' kit doesn't.

 

I find that the NHS gives me just enough sessions to start unpeeling layers and then it stops.

 

From what I've learned depression and anxiety is all too common and several family members have it. Unfortunately, a few years ago, I lost a cousin to suicide. I understand a lot about what triggers it in my case but do not have an easy solution.

Hi Pete.

Good to hear from you.

I also had major issues 2 years ago with my eye sight.

So I fully understand what cloudy vision feels like.

Take care.

Regards Paul
