You lads are really going out of your way for us.
I was thinking of bringing a telescope, but then I thought why? since there will be scopes there alot bigger then anything I can bring, so now I'm thinking of eyepieces...
Is there any point bringing eyepieces??, I've seven ultra wide angle eyepieces that might be useful, namely
meade 14mm UWA
5mm,7mm,9mm T6 naglers
22mm T2 nagler
26mm, 31mm T5 naglers

If someone there already has these, then there isn't much point in me bringing them, I'd like to contribute by bringing something to this and give people a chance of using them before they might go out and buy one.

Dave hi,
the available eyepieces are:
Naglers 7, 9, 13, 17, 26, Panoptic41 and WO UWAN16mm.
All the other have a lot of different brands we may use.
If anyone has to bring the N12T4 so I could have the chance
for a trυ :roll:
Thanks in advance!

of meeting you!

Thats great stuff,
Sounds like the only one that might be worth bringing is the 31mm, it would
be interesting to do a comparison between it and the panoptic do you think ?

You can add a Meade 4000 UWA 6.7 and a Kokusai Kohki UWA 13mm (my UWA eyepieces)
But my favourite is a Celestron Ultima 35mm.
Sorry, no Naglers...
