    Anyone heard of Grant Mitchell in Dorset??

    We don’t think it appropriate that SGL be used to publicly discuss and determine a private person’s reputation and integrity so the thread has been locked and will be removed.

  9. Mars at Opposition, best placed for viewing ie at its largest apparent diameter of 24.3 arc seconds, visual magnitude -2.8 and a distance of 57.8 million km. It transits at 1.15am but at a height of only 13.2 degrees above the horizon from London. Best bet is to get on a plane and head South! View the calendar event

    JTW Astronomy - rival to MESU?

    Mark Woodward at JTW Astronomy has contacted us saying he considers some of the posts from members in this thread "defamatory", "unfair" and "unacceptable". He has insisted the posts be removed. We don't normally allow companies to tell us what should or should not be posted at SGL but in this instance we have removed the posts. Customers of JTW are welcome to discuss their experiences (within reason) but SGL is not a suitable platform for someone to discuss a dispute they might have with JTW over a joint business venture.
