"Here is a map" for the observing evenings...
« on: Jul 23, 2009, 17:27:44 »
Not that I need to use it but if someone does want to turn up then the "Here is a map" (OAS home page - Observing Sites section) does just what it says on the tin, unfortunately.   Could someone update it to point to either the COH or HE ?
Many thanks
Robert

ah, that's a little test.

Make sure the visitor is truly committed to following the right path. The sycophants will fall by the wayside and the weak will succumb to temptation (often around about the change of horses).

Or, we'll fix it, although probably not tonight, we're meeting. Somewhere. Anyone know where? ;)

Ah, the perils of relying on good solid market-leading websites... ;)

It might be an idea to produce a graphic we can put on the website, and not rely on another site...

I think something like that can be done in Google Earth can't it ?

I've replaced the link with one to Google Maps...
