    Wonderful - thanks for sharing this Bob!!

    I love how the co-worker describes astronomy as "both complicated and futile"

    The conversation is somewhat similar to one I had with a friend the other day when I described in exquisite (or should that be excruciating?) detail how I used ACP to capture a series of images of an asteroid moving against the background stars.

    Friend: "Wow - you discovered an asteroid?"
    Me: "No, It was discovered in 1800 something or other"
    Friend: "But there's a chance it'll hit the Earth, right?"
    Me: "No, none whatever"
    Friend: (Pause) "So what's the point?"
    Me: "It's fun, and very challenging. And I'm gaining experience so that one day I may be able to discover something... very unlikely though"
    Friend: "Sounds both complicated and futile"
    Me: "Yes, you forgot to add that it's expensive. Very expensive"
