looks good, one glaring omission from the exhibitors, is it too far from Exeter?

It's 3 1/2 hours from me according to G Maps. Will need a good think.

Thanks for the link, it looks like a good show.  There appear to be more equipment exhibitors than there are at Astrofest this year.  Free talks too :smile:

Very tempted - it's about 100 miles each way for me, but definitely doable...

Nice one Nick, it’s about time there was a show close to Northampton,  I can even cycle there ?

Does anyone know if we can turn the predictive text off on SGL, it drives me up the wall ?

Just need to get out of a Friday night shift now.

I've got it in the diary. It's about 140 miles each way for me. A little further than the IAS but not much.

This show is being hosted by Altair Astro, and Peak2Valley Instruments, and any other exhibitors there, are there by invitation from them.

So if a certain vendor has not received an invite.......

I'm looking forward to it, and free entry and talks are a bonus.

That leaves a bit more cash to spend on astro gear ! ?

Why do organisers book dates that coincide with the New Moon?  It's bound to clash with one or more star parties, losing them potential stall holders and customers.

Just over a 100 miles for me, M25 / M1 which Google optimistically reckons will take me 2hours and 6 minutes, given that it sometimes takes an hour to cover the few miles through the Dartford Tunnel it could be closed time I get there :grin:
