    This was my first Christmas meeting and i was delighted to see so many members and such a high quality programme.  The presentation on the Voyagers and the heliosphere was fascinating and I had so many questions which I was not able to ask.  Very well done to BAA for a quality meeting.

    Very nice Mike.  Our own Arp program is continuing and during our last visit to the observatory we managed to put together a montage of six of the fainter Arps using our 12.5 inch Planewave.  The image is here http://www.paulandliz.org/Galaxies/ARP/Arp_Montage_191114.jpg

    We were surprised to discover, when we changed the C14 for a 12.5″ scope, how much light gathering capability we had lost for the very faintest Arps.  What you are doing with 8 inches is commendable.
