Re: ISAN #2 Pukekohe

Hey Chris, cool to see you guys out too! didi the 22in dobsonian have a Loftus mirror? we had Graeme Jonas (who made the mirrors for the 6in dobs we used) and his friend visit, they learned to make mirrors from Graham Loftus. John Dobson and Graeme Loftus visited us a few years back, great guys, I loved the time i spent with them, and their presentations, so inspiring, probaly why I'm out doing sidewalk events.

Hi Paul - yes the 22"was made by Graham and he was operating it on the night!! Great to see your account of your event also.
