Was there in 2015, one of my favorite places!

My 12 inch Dob would be awesome there.

You'll need a lot of luck for clear skies though!

Clear skies! 🤞

I hope the sky cooperates so that we get great reports and pictures. :smiley:

May I ask who The Dob Mob are. Are they dotted all around the country? Can any old Dob join them? It sounds like they have a great time on serving.

Basically it's me, steve,damo and Danski.. there's a gruesome initiation ceremony but after that it gets harder to join!!!....Just a bunch of down to earth mukkers who travel to ridiculous lengths to hunt down the fuzzies. 

Lucky enough to have the time to enjoy dark skies and promoting the importance of using your car as much as your telescope to truly see the wonderful treasures above us. 

Clear skies!

Haha, in latest Star Wars, Luke lives in hiding on remote islands, shot on location at Isle of Skye.
