Astro Course

If any of you get the chance to do Alan Charlton's Astro Course then jump at it. ( He is the organiser). I did it last week end and apart from the fact that it reminded me of how much I had forgotten it was presented by George who is not a 'book presenter' - he has been there and done it (several times) he gives good practical advice. He'll be on the Jester this year.

Well worth every penny - and more!

Many thanks to both Alan and George.
