At Nebrodi Mountains in Sicily, Marco Benintende took this remarkable image of a complete set of instruments to get the most from an astronomical experience under dark skies. His father, Giovanni is ensuring everything works as desired in the dusk before a promising clear sky astronomical season.

Am I the only person that sgeutglrd with the html implementation of the quiz? (especially reloading the entire page (complete with video adverts) twice for each question)It seemed to take longer and longer to re-load each page the further in I got - to the point where it took half an hour just the 'load' the last 10 questions...Same problem with Win7/IE8 & iOS/Safari platforms...FWIW, I got 72% ...not bad for a recollection of High School Science over 25yrs ago ;-)
