It has indeed - and it's now only £3.50 (reduction of £1.50). An absolute bargain!Gary

Hi Roy-Gary.I've seen it and bought a copy.I have also signed UP for circulars in pdf format, and joined the section. You might have, already had, an e-mail from Roger about this next question. I wonder whether you, and possibly Tony Markham could act as mentor's?Tony lives only Ten miles from me in Leek. And he would be the ideal person to arrange a practical, visual, observing session with.I will also be attending the meeting in October in Eccles.

Hi Paul,Yes certainly I could act as a mentor to your telescopic observing. I don't do many binocular stars at all, so Tony would be ideal for this as he doesn't do telescopic stars!You have my e-mail address. Just drop me a line when you need advice and we'll take it from there.Look forward to meeting you at the section meeting!Gary

Can we get rid of the apostrophe in star's (sic) please?
