Yeah, the weather is sketchy. I'll have to see what October dates are available. I'm gonna say there is a 25% chance for this weekend. Not looking good. :(

I'm officially canceling the event. The weather is not cooperating. I'll post a back up date when I check the club's schedule.

I know, it's cleared up here tonight as well. May try to get a little time in this evening, although I still wouldn't have been able to make it with the kid being sick. Let's hope for the next one!

Clear skies,

Greetings to all. I do not know if this is the right place to see advice about a purchase of a 127mm Triplet but at least it is worth the try. I have put money down on a Maxvision 127mm true APO for $1600 USD and would like to know if anyone had any experience/information on this item. Any expertise or advice would be most welcome. THanks
