||Notes by Dave Owen:-
The Leasowe Lighthouse event on Fri 14 Jan 2000 went quite well. We estimate
that the attendance was about 120. I did three slide shows indoors so I did
not see a great deal of what was happening outside. However, there were
sufficient breaks in the cloud to show the Moon, Jupiter and Saturn. Alan
Cavaliere made a brave attempt at using the 12 inch Platt but the conditions
were to windy for it to be used easily. My 6 inch telescope was looked after
by Gerald Oliver. Juan Rivero brought his C8. Steve Southern brought his
ETX, and Jim Stacey brought his 4.5 inch Tal. So, a fair number of telescopes.
If anybody would like to help out at a future Sidewalk event, or has any
ideas that would enhance these events, please come along or E-mail myself
or Geoff Regan.
