I really enjoyed the video! Nice production value. The drone footage of the site and surrounding area, the nature sounds, the view through the eyepiece with NV and the narration.

Very dramatic scenery. I only have foxes and hedgehogs to worry about, though eh et can make some pretty weird noises. Great to get more “eyepiece experience” videos online to promote NV! For the bigger nebulae you need less focal length.

I've been watching your videos for some time. Always good stuff. Though usually a bit jealous of the skies!

I really dig that kind of content. Very personal. Please add real time NV next time!

Thanks for the hard work.
