Better that old people should die of talk than to have young people die in war.

Following up with the same link, there are at least four hotels - www.allsiberia.com/novosibirsk/Hotels.htm - with three of the four having over 200+ rooms which is encouraging (?) for us.

However, not a single reference if they have internet access or not. :?

Also, no email addresses are specified so that we can inquire about accomodations and pricing. :?

Dave,

Looking at your signature I note a 20" Obsession ... awesome dude!!!

Can I assume it will be used for hires high power lunar/planetary work and, if so, what camera did you have in mind to go with this wonderful scope?

Anyway, many congrats on the new toy.

I have a killer scope coming my way as well over the next couple of months ... serious aperture, serious focal length and most certainly serious optics! :wink:

Hi Anthony,
This scope is purely manual so imaging through it is very difficult as Saturn goes through the toucam field view in 2.5 seconds. Here is a post for the Dob

We managed to get a quick one of Saturn through it.

to be honest, for now I'm going with non-imaging with this scope.
So, what are you getting your hands on ??
