Well Lads,
Good luck to all travelling there, : cheer:
BUT, given my sudden massive increase in fear regarding getting my gear lost in transit, stolen, confiscated or given away as a bribe, I'm seriously thinking of bringing a camcorder and a pair of binoculars and leaving the scope+mount and all that goes with it back here, I like the idea of having it there to use in the next eclipse.
Also, I think that given the weather we'll all be driving through corn fields chasing the gaps in the clouds so binoculars might be the way to go. :unsure:

Not that I'm aware of, but the UK met office satellite image of Asia shows western China fairly clear as of 07.00, but the Novosibirsk region somewhat clouded. Can't wait to hear the news from the lads on the ground!
