    Never been to Holland,

    But I like the part in the article that refers to "helder weer" almost like a disclaimer if its cloudy! LOL

    Yeah, the last week it has not been good for scopes. I did manage to get out last Sat for a few hours, but that was it.

    I just realized I only read the article in your picture and did not click on the link you provided.

    Those guys claim to have one of the largest scopes in the Netherlands. Might be well worth a visit!

    Quote "Observatorium
    In de koepel staat een grote computergestuurde telescoop. De telescoop is een van de grootste van Nederland. Met deze telescoop kunt u allerlei objecten bekijken, zoals kraters en bergen op de maan en de ringen van Saturnus. Als het echt helder weer is, kunt u ook naar andere verre werelden, zoals sterrenstelsels en sterrenhopen kijken"

    And there is a planetarium etc.
    Sounds like a win win situation.

    Give us feedback if you do go!
