You would not believe the discussions and options considered for that ruddy flag!

Was nice to have a quick catch up Si, and meet you t'other Phil ;)

I didn't spend a penny either (other than a few coffees) but I really liked the look of that 10Micron 1000HPS that Ian King had up for sale. I wonder if he'd take a kidney in payment...? :thumbup:

Look forward to seeing you all in April at Kelling

It was a great day out. And I enjoyed meeting Si- Nigel and Phil.

It's shame we didn't have our own stand. Maybe next year?

Gear on show was mouth watering. And I could have spent a small fortune, had I been lucky last night, with Friday's euromillions.

I saw some wonderful telescopes, together with, some fabulous mounts and cameras.

Like Phil. I didn't spend a penny ether  :surprise:

I will be going back next year!

Was good catching up with Nick & the rest of the Altair guys (many thanks to Nick, for giving me lots to think on !  :thumbup:), as well as the few UKAI-ers left who weren't interested in big men playing with balls  :surprise:

Really good to meet up with Phil & have a good natter on things too :thumbup:  I now have an official T-shirt to put on when observing - think it'll help the skies ?  :pray:  Although SWMBO did say she'll have to do a specific wash just for it - unsure whether it's because it's so good - or black  :tease:  Although she did tell me off a few minutes later for not getting another !  Can't win sometimes  :embarrass:
