Me too. Looking forward to it already!

Stamford to Kettering.
Local for you but a bit too far to walk if you buy anything big, or are wandering around the stands all day🀣

I'll be there with mikeDnight, I'll be the handsome chap stood next to him.  If that's not enough to tell us apart, I'll be wearing a name badge 😊.

You'd better believe it!Β  And just in case you want to say hello, here's who to look out for. As Paul said, he's "the handsome one".

Pretty close - definitely too close to miss out. Last years PAS triggered a precipitously expensive return to the hobby "full blast" - i'm hoping this years PAS will be a little bit more moderate πŸ™‚

If it makes you feel any better, you would only have spent it on something else of much less importance, such as fuel bills or council tax.Β

Mrs. H and I are planning to go for an astro day out in Kettering. That poor woman has suffered my hobbies without complaint for over fifty years. She is quite literally a saint.

George currently in bed in Lowestoft as there is horizon to horizon cloud outside.

The last talk I gave to a astronomical society, which they'ed booked well in advance, was on the subject of visual astronomy past and present. At the end, the secretary apologised as the societies only visual observer hadn't bothered to turn up.Β  As the saying goes 'Never say Never',Β  well I'm saying it - "Never again"!Β Β

Well Mike, I know of at least 6 of us who will be at PAS, and we'd all happily sit and listen to you for an hour if you're supplying the coffee??!!😁😁

That is only true if you think a sub - four inch Takahashi is the best telescope for everything and you're certainly not an imager!  😁

Well I'm certainly not an imager!! And I would tend to agree a 4" Tak is hard to beat.. if I didn't have a 5"..πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‚
