Thanks for the update.
Darren was often on www.astrosafari.co.uk a lot then he suddenly disappeared !, would be good to know that he is OK, last I heard from him was that he was having trouble with his ISP.
If you do contact him Please tell him that ALL the GUYS in the UK wish Him Well and hope to hear from him SOON.
