The U in UDSC stands for Unofficial, I'll leave you to guess the rest and the Coathanger is in Vulpecula.

Great picture by the way.

Woodlands is the Official DSC. Until further notice that is where they will all be held.

Robert,

Sorry about that, I hope I didn't breach any copyright laws or anything.  ;)

Nice one Robert, although something has happened with the colour ?

Fay the coat hanger fits really well in a ZS66 with a 25mm eye piece and its really distinctive when you look at it, its great to see it in a picture.

When is the next Official DSC if its at Woodlands I'll probably take the week off.
