Folks,

This probably won't get as much press coverage as other astro news today! :)

Hi Doug.
I am pleased to see it is now listed in the VSX Database and a sequence has been prepared. I have downloaded the charts and will start observing. I am getitng a 28" f/3.3 made and one of the things I want to do is observe the relatively 'brighter' RCBs in the LMC and SMC
