The event is now fully booked, which is great for those who are going, but not for those that missed out

Wow that is ridiculously quick, so it is obviously booked by the people that are there each year, not giving anyone else a chance.

And yes i have been there before

Indeef Al, was good to catch up with so many (including you! ) and the 2 full nights + a half night of clear skies, out of three, made it a great three days! Another great SPSP.
Mike.

Mikes Mount Impersonation repertoire has to have been the highlight of SPSP for Nicky and I this year.


We haven't been able to stop laughing at your amazing "Meade", or the "Skywatcher Dob" encoders impersonation.

Was great to see f2f all the friendly names on this site in the flesh and have a chat.

Clear Skies .

The difference between a poodle humping your mount and Mike Sidonio humping your mount...


You let Mike finish
