I'll have an Ethos 13mm plus half a dozen Naglers from 3.5mm to 31mm - you are welcome to try any and all of them :icon_rolleyes:

Thanks John I really appreciate this. I'm so determined to get a collection of Naglers, and to see the view first would be fantastic.

No problem - besides the chance of looking through the larger brother of my LB12 is not something I'd want to miss ;)

I hope we get some good skies - the views through 12" scopes at SGL4 on the Saturday night were stunning (1st time I've seen spiral arms in M51 and a mag 13.5 supernova :)) - a 16" under a dark sky would be truly unforgettable :icon_rolleyes:

Just be yourself, enjoy the company, put your feet up, relax and enjoy!

There is no pecking order at my starparties so feel free to learn and share! Were just one big family open to just about anything you can imagine from imaging, binos, observing and general banter

Oh one more thing, bring a red torch. White lights are a no no at starparties too.

Darren :icon_rolleyes:

Ps don't forget your tent and all other stuff LOL

She's such a pale colour that I might have to paint her red so that she doesn't interfere with night vision :icon_rolleyes:.

You need a "Nelson" style flashing red led collar for Nadia... wicked...

Joking aside the flashing red light on his collar meant it was safer for "nelson" and those wandering around in the dark...
