Carl,
Well done - a great credit to your efforts - getting the grant then finding such a monster telescope(!) and finally getting the procedure successfully signed off.

Hear, hear!
I remember that I was sceptical when you suggested that we could get a grant from the CVS, but you've showed the vision and leadership to see it through - well done.

With the poor weather over the last three months, we've not seen the best of the BBT yet, but hopefully we will get at least a couple of clear dark nights with it before the summer?

Yes, Well done Carl.
One day, 100 years from now someone will give a talk about the BAS and the BBT and rename it in your honour,
" The Stone Telescope 2012"
But must not forget all the others who were involved well done.

Hmmmm that's a nice thought Carl from Peter :)
Maybe we should rename you Jeremiah stone :lol:
Joking aside, well done, it's a great achievement and a good asset for the club.
Lets just hope for more clear skies so we can use it :roll:
