Designed for weatherproof comfort at sports meetings etc but maybe just what the astronomer needs:

Makes a good alternative to the toilet tent warm-room :)

I make sure to wear enough layers Brian, and also close off the trousers at the ankles.
A problem with the darker evenings is that there are plenty of fat slugs and snails about.
I roll the big ones over onto their backs with my shoe, then flick them into the shrubbery. Mind you, once they've recovered from the shock and awe of the experience, they soon return.

Their worlds move so slowly they probably don't even know they've been flicked. Must seem like some sort of teleportation event to them :lol: Do they even see us as we dash by them?

After a night's observing, one of my first jobs next morning is to sweep the cadavers off the garden path where they have been crunched underfoot :wink:

Regards,
