That is a nice montage of images of Robert’s most famous of comets. I have one of those given to me by Rob when he stayed with me after his UK tour in 2015. He returned to OZ after the devastating bush fire that totally destroyed his home near Coonabarabran which wasclose to the UK Schmidt unit and th Upsala Southern Schmidt where he made so many comet discoveries.I was in regular contact with him after his return via email but no contact for over a year now. I asked Malcolm Hartley,one of the astronomers at the UK Schmidt  unit who lives in Coonabarabran and who Rod stayed with recently, if he could let Rob know that we want to re-establish contact with him. His last idea was that he was going to restart his visual search for novae in the Southern skies. Perhaps he has gone walk about instead! If any one has contact with him could you please ask him to contact either Guy Hurst or myself. He has a sister who lives in Edinburgh, so if anyone knows her address let me know.
