Count me in if the weather behaves.
Its been so long, I hope I remember which end of the scope points up?
I'll just keep it simple and bring the dob, no power no problems. May have to clean and colimate the mirror.
See you saturday hopefully.

I'll bump it again Ron by saying that the weather both sucks and blows. What is it with new moon and cloud, are they somehow linked??? I might get in to meteorology so I can work out the relationship.

Hi Ron, It was good to finally meet up with you on Thursday, sorry I did not make it on Saturday for the Astro Night, but I managed to get home in time to quickly set up the scope in the back yard, it was a good night for Astro. As soon as I was set up I set the scope to goto IC4901, it appeared exactly at the centre of view and SN2011gv was relatively easy to find even PGC 63808 was in the field of view but very faint.
Great views of NGC 253 lots of detail, 47 tuc bright as usual, Tarantula Neb had great detail and Jupiter was breathtaking, watched the spot transit for a few minutes. All in all a good night, Lots of favorites observed and a Supernova, hope you had a good night as well.
