To Peter Harding: I would be very interested in the keyboard. I am trying to preserve what I can and have assembled a small collection of Galaxy parts. I am missing the keyboard you mention.

I have a Galaxy 1 keyboard (without numeric pad) which I bought with a job lot of other computer stuff at an auction some 30 odd years ago. It has a 15 pin D connector which I presume was used before keyboard connectors were standardised across manufacturers. Is it something you would like?

I am very keen to gather and archive as much Gemini software and documentation as I can. These were great machines, however, very little seems to have been kept over the years.

If you can help me preserve this stuff for future generations, please get in touch via or this forum.

I still have a Gemini Galaxy 2 (GM905) which I used for many years to design printed circuit boards. It is installed with a Pluto IO828 graphics board which ran a CAD-8 design software package. I also have lots of documentation including catalogues, price lists and original advertising material.

My father, John Marshall, was the founder of NASCOM and then Gemini.

I remember this great lump of a computer very well. We had one at home that I was not allowed to use!

I never really inherited my father''s interest in technology and to me I still find iphones and PCs a thing of mystery and frustration.

I was fascinated to find this article. My father passed away a few years ago now but I think about him all the time. It is lovely being able to read things like this and to realise there are still some of them out there, even if they are in garages or boxes.

I sold quite a few of those at the time from my shop/workshop in Aarhus.
A brilliant machine that came with all documentation - even schematics for
all the boards in the machine. (I guess I still have the manuals somewhere).
We used to convert them to be used for entry to professional phototypesetters.
The MFB model was equipped with all the types of floppy drives and a program
to analyse and setup all diskette formats. Genious !!

I bought a Gemini Galaxy 1 when they first were available, still have though haven''t used for many years. It was £1850 new. I wrote many programs using the language Comal which was one the software packages that came with the machinre. It had twin processors one video, one for the processing Z80a chips were used. Twin 400k floppy 5 1/4 inch drives ment quick loading. Well ahead for it''s time. I added a modem later on which I bought second hand for £40.00 so I could connect to Bulletin Boards sites. The 80 bus was a great inovated system with board sloted in to adapt the computer and CP/M was a good operating system with now blue screens. A light pen system for touch screen opertion was available also a clock board.could give date and time.

I have the bare-bones version in my garage. Mine has the IO Pluto graphics board 640x575 or 768x575 RGB (3 bit). Some CPU boards had 256kB paged memory. I also have a RAM Disk - which made WordStar fast, and the SVC video card.

I briefly had a Galaxy 2 passing through my collection a few years ago - didn't have space to keep it and traded it on various kit that I needed.

It was a very nice CP/M system. Three floppy drives, which was unusual. The video card was absolutely excellent - very crisp and fast - it was quite the nicest machine I've ever run WordStar on. Reasonable keyboard, nicely put-together - but obviously more expensive than the Superbrains and other CP/M boxes people tended to spend their money on.
