Hey Luke,

The weather is not looking good for Fri/Sat. That and my little one has come down with strep, so I won't be attending. Given the forecast, any chance of looking at the rain date? I think you mentioned something in October?

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,

Hey Luke, weather would have been good if you have not use the location as Cloud-chester, NY. Just try to be positive about where we live.

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
