OK boys and girls,

it's time to let you in on the big news! Yes, for the last few weeks ASIGN Observatory II has been gearing up to get ready for the TV crew from Australia's very own Better Homes and Gardens!

Miracle after miracle has been pouring in from friends, family, work mates and even total strangers from the internet giving their time, some generous donations and unfailing support. Not only that, but the timing of all of these things has been absolutley perfect as if by divine design - right down to the TV being donated the day after the electricity was all connected.

The crew arrived this afternoon and straight away, my nerves about meeting celebrities were put at ease as these very professional individuals were so down to earth. Russell and the film and sound guys were brilliant to work with and my eyes were opened at some of their film tricks and equipment. More on that when you see the show.

Johanna Griggs was as friendly, happy and graceful as you could imagine. I felt very at-ease with her questions in the on-camera interviews. The make-up lady was as much a part of the team, engaging as the rest while she powdered my shiny nose under the lights.

My darling wife worked like a trooper, baking biscuits for the team. They absolutely loved them.

Being a man left to his own devices without the quidance of his good wife, I goofed big as is my manly custom and right! There was a platter of bread on the bench which I took outside with the cakes. How was I supposed to know that there was a plate of cheese and salami in the fridge to go with it? You know... being a man and all.....

Anyways, watch out for the show on the 11th of October at 7pm on channel Seven. I'll post up links once they have it on their website after the show.

Thanks again to all who have made this possible. You know who you are.

Cheers and blessings!!!

Baz.

Congratulations, again!

Wow - who needs a house with an observatory like that! The house would become my rental and I'd be just fine...

There should be a teaser at the end of Better Homes and Gardens this coming Friday if you live in Australia.

You're gonna love it!

I confess to being a lurker on these forums, but wanted to say thanks for sharing your build with us. I've been following it for a while. Also great to see God working behind the scenes! Hope you enjoy it and have some great times in there, I'm sure you will.
I'm a complete astronomy beginner but would love to have my own observatory some day and would be chuffed if it was half as good as yours!
Also your Iron Man suit build is cool, looking forward to seeing the final result!

Cheers,
Craig.

Ack! I'm in the U.S. and when I try to view the video, I get the message:

"The video you are trying to watch cannot be viewed from your current country or location."

Bummer!
