    Thanks for the welcome. Oracle State Park sounds perfect. I wish I lived closer -- that's about an hour drive each way for me here on the far SE side of Tucson.

    Thank you. I had to look that up on a map: Durban, S. Africa. Do you have good seeing there? I envy your view of the southern night sky.
