    Hi Brian,

    I'm well up for that.................what did you have in mind? I'd really like a lunar challenge, I recently read SPM's article in Dec Sky at Night Magazine on The Straight Range (Montes Recti) found on the N edge of Mare Imbrium. Best times to observe and photograph this month are 15,16 & 28th Dec....will that fit the brief or did you have something else in mind?

    That sounds like fun Carol if the weather will cooperate! I'll give it a go, conditions permitting. Anyone else up for this?

    Hi Lizzy,

    I'm sending my contact info to your e-mail slug...should be there directly. Oh yeah, I covet one of those giant projectors too, better than a 78" TV screen!
