Re: Shame I missed the last meeting...

Hi Paul N, I do indeed have an OMC140, and it's great for visual observing, nice and portable. I haven't done much imaging with it, but if you want to do deep sky stuff, then (as Geoff says) something with a faster f number and maybe also a larger aperture would be better. I'll be bringing my scope ...

Re: A little knowledge...

I too have a laser collimator and some experience of collimating Newtonians.

Glad you had a good trip.
See you at the Fairmont. Geoff should be there first, near the clubhouse, so look out for him when you get there.

Re: Venus Transit 6 June 2012

Hi Brian, If you are a very 'enthusiastic' driver (which I'm not) you might be able to make it in an hour. When we went through to the Fairmont at the end of March, it took me an hour after picking Andy up in Kirkcaldy, mainly because once you get into the East Neuk the roads get narrow and twisty. ...
