Thank you Donna. It was such a fabulous night and Paris and Heather were over the moon! They are planning on coming back with some friends once their training schedule finishes. Your passion and knowledge is so immense. Also, It was more than kind of you to set up the big boy telescope. After a very long day at Dunedoo with 45 young people it was such a glorious way to end the day.
