Hi Dave,

I'm going this year (Friday, Saturday Sunday). Be good to meet up again - be sure to bring a clear sky with you!

All the best

Hi,
Jack it will be good to meet up again.
Will be travelling up with my son (sparkymark). will have the car loaded up with the camping gear and his 8" Dob, going to have to do a "trial" load up to see if we can squeeze in my LX200, but space is limited (no pun intended :) ).
Looking forward to it and as you say, let's bring up some good weather.
All the best.
Dave

Hi Dave,

Good stuff. I used Mindy's micra the first year so was a bit limited. Last year I took my mondeo so was able to cram in a lot more and a much bigger tent. My mondeo is now scrap and I have to get another car, so might be back to a small tent depending on my new car. One thing for sure, there will always be room for the scope! Hope you can squeeze the Meade in.

All the best
