Looking for an even better view?

So, with Dad’s Father’s Day pressie all sorted, why not take a breather, re-charge the batteries and go outside to look upon our marvellous starry skies.  The views are breathtaking, particularly in #astrotourism country, and maybe stargazing and astronomy can become your hobby as well.
