Please accept my sincere apologies for not being there!


Dear Friends (and Anthony) :D

Only kidding my friend. Although I will not be able to travel to Novo, I have no doubt that we will get to meet you in the not too distant future. Maybe you will come to Ireland with all the rest of the gang (hint, hint) :)

Regards and Clear Skies,

Dave.

Here are some photos from the trip

I also took an image of the Milky Way in Sagittarius.
Hutech Modified 300d, Astrotrac (thanks Frank!); 338sec + 388sec exposures (total 12 mins) combined in Photoshop; ISO400; Canon 100-400mm L Lens @ 100mm focal length for this image.
Minimal processing done of these images. By and large, this is how it appeared on the LCD screen after taking the exposure.

Hey Geeks!
Uh..
I mean..
GREEKS!

You guys are THE BEST!

The lads have already said it all
but I'd still like to say I can not get over your hospitality!
I'm with Dave L here,
I think you are working for the Greek tourist board on the sly.
:lol:

I had a fantastic time.
Thank you all sooooo much!

All I can say really is that my house is yours.
Please, please do come over sometime soon!
I'd love to take ye around West Clare and show ye the sights.
(maybe if we are lucky the skies will be good in the Burren)

Again
THANK YOU ALL SOOO MUCH!
Yiamas!
