Hi Shelly,look forward to hopefully catching up this weekend :thumbsup:
I have a spare bedroom with only a single bed but you can put one of my spare mattresses on the floor or there is a double bed pull out couch in the lounge whichever you prefare ;)
the bed has sheets and I can provide for the other things or you can just bring a doona or something:shrug:
Just bring a pillar and some sleeping gear.:)
A chair and something to eat and drink plus some warm clothes and good foot ware and of course your scope:P

Hey Ron. I'm Shelley's friend coming along for a good night and hopefully some clear skies. :)
Are there any problems with road access due to all the rain lately?

Ooooops, I'm a terrible friend, I didn't even say you were a member of IIS! :lol: Cherie has been kind enough to loan me her 10" Dob "Pavo" for the past few months :) :thanx:
Ron, I don't mind just a mattress on the floor so long as we have somewhere to keep warm and get some shut eye :) I will bring bedding for both mattresses for Cherie and I as it will also be handy padding to put around the scope for the journey.
How has the weather been at Cambroon? The skies seem to clear up quite a bit in the afternoon here so I'm hoping it's the same at your place Ron. Looking forward to a great night :D

:hi:Cherie there are no problems with the roads to Cambroon and with a bit of luck and some warm weather the place will have really dried out by Saturday:)
It will be good to catch up with you and Shelly fingers crossed for some nice clear dark sky's
