One of my favorite images

I may have posted this before, but it really embodies our legendary strong club spirit and deserves another look. To all of you in the picture, I extend my fondest thanks for such wonderful memories, and hope you are faring well in these odd times. I look forward to seeing each and every one of you in person.

Those were the days, i can remember having 30 or more club members camping together at Stellafane. Who knows if we will even be able to do the Myles Standish weekend this year...

Those were indeed the days. Its always good to look back on a picture like that and remember all the great times and many adventures of Stellafane. I enjoy each and every year with all of those who attend and hopefully it will happen this year and it will be extra special after all we have been through.

I don't see parks opening probably till July or August this year. Even if we hit our Covid peak in the next few weeks I think government will remain cautious and delay any mass groups for a few months. I hope I am wrong but we shall see.

10" f/5 Home built Dob with Parks mirror.

Celestron Skymaster Binos 25-125x80
Meade Travelview Binos 10x50

See that 16" in the sleek black dress? She is all mine. :)
