  1. Hi and welcome Bob to SGL
  2. Having read the comments above on this, I think that they should stick with the system where you can book for the Autumn party when you arrive for the spring party, this is what I did this year, that way the ones that do arrive for a longer stay, do get the better pitches as they are staying longer, I usually arrive for a week stay and find that, yes most of the best pitches have been booked, but still find a half decent one to go on. But I totally disagree with this "block booking of pitches " OK the organisers can book up in advance, but not 50 pitches, that's just not fair on everyone else and as they know when the party is going to be before anyone else, why do they have to block them out, if they are holding them for a " mate " then this is not fair and if it continues, I believe you will see the star party's attendance figures will start to drop as more and more astronomers find other venues to go to That's my say on the subject, hope to see some of you in a few weeks time
  3. Hi All My name is Neil and I make the all the covers for Cygnus Astro Covers I have just seen a review by James Screech and I would like to put to put the record straight as it were. 1. Yes it did take me a few weeks to reply to James, this is because if I remember correctly, I did not have internet for a few weeks and was unable to reply to anyone. 2. Once I did reply, James placed an order with me for 2 scope covers and it took 11 days from him placing the order to me posting them to him, I do state on my website, please allow up to 10 days for a cover to be made, the delay was due to bad weather here, so the drying time had to be extended. I hope that this will help anyone thinking about placing order with me to do so, and this is the first negative review I have seen regarding my covers. Regards Neil
