One that got away

Postby Solar B » 28 Nov 2008, 22:36

While at Kielder this October i had the opportunity to spend some time with this magnificent scope...it offered views that i find hard to describe
...the richness and colours it displayed were breathtaking...something as simple as the Pleiades took on a whole new meaning.
Unfortunately these experiences come at a price...worth it?....yes every penny and this coming from a solar astronomer.

This is the kind of scope that i hope the club will be able to afford in
a few years time mate....it would not depreciate....a sound investment.
