Thanks for organising the sidewalk. Sky was cloudy shortly after sunset and clear up again after 9pm+.

We had a good time catching up one another, had good looks of Moon and Jupiter (especially through the ED APO) and a successful first-lighting a pre-loved bargain telescope (no mis-collimation issues).

Went back to Bishan Park after the long NE monsoon break. Brought back lots of wonderful feelings of the events we conducted there again. :)
