It's that time of the year again, is there anyone out there up for the challenge of seeing the entire Messier list in one night?
The last time I organised this, flu caught me and I was unable to attend.  There are two windows this year, March 21 and March 28.
What do you think?

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better programs, and the universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the universe is winning.

Both dates are good for me.

Sure why not?

Count me in, and both nights should be good for me too. 

Great stuff!

Anyone got a good site in mind?  We need a good eastern and southern view.  I don't think the Sugarloaf works, the towns of Greystones and Wicklow interfere to the south.  Somewhere south of Wicklow town should work.

I think it was somewhere near Lough Tay, but I remember you guys saying that there was a lot of passing traffic.
