I'm ashamed to say that I am getting excited already!

Me too! But I'm not ashamed as I missed the last SGL gig so I feel deprived :lol:

Any chance of a look through your new scope? :wink:

Me too. And of course you may have a look through the new scope. The chap who sold it to me told me that it can resolve the craters on Jupiter and just make out that new planet orbiting Proxima  Centuri !!!!

As we will be a fairly small group on a nearly empty campsite I am thinking of bringing my dog, Monty.

Monty is a rather exuberant individual who loves everyone and enthusiastically lets them know it. He can be quite boisterous with other dogs but just wants to play. Some dogs enjoy Monty's enthusiasm more than others :smile: 

This is he being calmed by Mrs T on a beach on Skye...

Are there any objections to Monty joining the group?

I will not be in any way offended if anyone objects so please feel free to say so.

None only that he doesn't want to chew my scope (or anyone elses for that matter)

I am please to say that Monty does not chew things that don't belong to him - nor does he use them to rest his leg against :wink:

I will bring your old 130mm heritage scope so you can see how it's doing.
