Hi Guys..

Some of the guys from the South Kerry Astronomy Club
will be attending for the weekend(great news)
They have also invited us over the weekend to visit
the new Dark Sky office as well as the Astronomy Centre
in Waterville..

They also wanted me to ask if anyone going
would be able to do a time lapse video of
1 of the nights observing...

ATTENTION
Stephen wants me to let you know that he will be
bringing only a few items with him as he wants to travel light, so if anybody wants
anything in particular from him you should contact
him at sales@ktectelescopes.ie , or call 0852288692..

Cheers Roy

Hi all,

Given that this is an observing weekend, will there be an official YES/NO decision next week prior to the weekend based on the forecast OR will it definitely happen regardless of the forecast and hope we get lucky? Weather forecasting is not an exact science and has been known to get it wrong!

Thanks

Neill

I'm going down regardless. If the weather is carp I'll have a look at the local attractions such as the Tetrapod footprints.
