No Monthly targets for a while?

Open letter to Dion;
I think you are spending far to much time at your scope, no targets since March?
Very poor form.
If you ever get round to it may I request the following criteria for your next list?
a) Target must be clearly visible from 8pm to 3am, to the naked eye.
b) Target must not move during this time (currently struggling with PHD)
c) Target must not be easily confused with anything else within the fov of a 68 degree EP (currently struggling with alignment for goto`s)
d) Target must have lots of nice colours.
e) Target must be away from the flightpath of Easyjet going into Liverpool\Manchester.
f) Target must be in the South (opposite direction to my neighbours floodlight)
g) Target must be at least 50 degrees above the horizon (trees)
h) Target must make SWMBO go wow (to justify my overdraft)

So, once you have that sorted you can go back to your sccope. :thumbsup:
Does not seem like a lot to ask, may even attract some new Sheddders.
