Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Just a quick note to wish you all a Merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year.

The weather does not look good for festive observing with any new equipment Santa may bring you, (at least here in Cumbria). However, 2013 promises to be a good year for astronomy, starting with BBC's Stargazing LIVE TV series in early January and plenty of events in Cumbria including our own Stargazing in Cockermouth event on 19th January. Check back after Christmas for more details.

Season's greetings and clear skies,
