... the challenge is getting there and having somewhere to stay.

How about a camping setup? Seriously.

We will get Seanie to keep an eye out for the Russian bears. In fact we can make a sacrifice .... Seanie! :P

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time. . . .

I intend on going anyway! An etx 70 is really the only scope you can bring. or maybe a WO refractor!

Seanie, my buddy, my friend, my pal,

We would all like to chip in pay for your (one-way) flight to Russia. Interested? :lol:

I will be armed with my Tak FSQ-106, AP Mach1GTO and Canon EOS 300D.

Ditto for China and the eclipse the following year.
