Hi everyone,

Take notice; The Beginning DSO - M27 is for the month of July and not for August!

Hi All,

I'm here to confess - I screwed up at May's polls and asked for targets for August when I should have asked for targets for July. This happened when I took over the polls for Luke, who had to leave temporarily (I hope) for personal reasons. I messed up the same way in both the beginning and intermediate DSO polls.

Will has decided to leave his choice on the table, and M27 will be the subject of the July Beginning DSO Challenge. New Moon is on the 19th. I hope to see a lot of entries this month!

Again, I'm very sorry for any confusion this may have caused you.

Charlie
