There is Dave, we have 2 sites available to us. If weather permits, we have both Friday and Saturday nights for it. Plus, plenty of solar observing during the 3 days. :)

Can I ask why 2 sites Seanie?
In one near and the other far?
I'm assuming the darker one is further away or something to that effect..
