1. Vincent- 'cookie8'
2. George
3. Jakob
4. Marco with his son cooking pasta !
5. Geoff the owl, building his freezer suit emporium.
6. ving ?
7. Busy collimating a scope.
8. A Meade in the wind !

Great stuff Andrew...but did anyone get any shots of us lot up on the imaging hill at all? I think Big Dave got a couple. I know we were a bit remote from everyone else down on the flats - which was a big pity.

Nice thread Andrew
Its funny knowing people here in cyber space and having absolutly no idea what they look look like.
Whats even funnier is that I actualy met you almost two years ago on one of our observing jaunts and thought I was being stalked by a grinning stranger at the local shopping centre just a couple of months ago!!!

While we are at it.....

We were lucky enough to have Fred (Bassnut) as a neighbor.
Fred's probably forgotten more stuff on astro imaging than your average punter has knows.
Not to mention his abundance of stories from his globe trotting adventures.
Should have taken a time lapse series of shots of Fred erecting his tent but, I only had a zillion gig of memory left for the camera

Really enjoyed John and Gary ( I won the Argo last time) bouncing off one another during their presentation on the Texas star party.
