Some general photos from the weekend meeting at Ostende, we both enjoyed the weekend, fully appreciating the work which went into the organisation of the event and to the talks given members. ( Takes a fair bit of courage and confidence to put yourself on the spot, so well done to all.)
It was very nice to be able to catch up with friends and to meet some of the folks whom we had met at Munich two years ago, so once again thank you to all who made this a very nice relaxing weekend.
I confess to having taken about 1400 photos, my "OCD" is not improving. :)

For myself, this was an encounter which was a pure delight,  Simon Tomlinson from Sheffield brought with him some delightful optics, included in his display was this fantastic Ross "Stephnite 7x50, a very attractive, tactile and delightful binocular- I was just so pleased to see such an excellent example and even more so to see it in safe hands.
Seeing it was a total surprise and my word what a beauty - so good, Simon thank you for bringing this one with you, certainly made my day.
The case, as good as new - mint set.

Some lovely stuff James. Who owns the cxn 8x60?
