Just a quick message before bed.

It was great to meet everyone, have a play and get a look at Saturn through the Kensington. That was some view for a 130yr old telescope!

I look forward to my next visit when back down this way.

Thanks again - Alan.

Was a good night, just a pity about the wind

See you there again soon.

My widefield shot of Cepheus with the camera at 45 degrees. You can really see how much the accumulated light pollution fogs out the horizon.
