Plus the "Ash cloud" causes atmospheric distortion doesn't it and the UK will probably get that. Rather not have that thanks especially as we are over due for a big one.

Last time we had an eruption was just before I got into the hobby, but many have told me that it was some of the best seeing conditions for years despite any dust in the atmosphere. Counter to what I thought would of happened.

Well you live and learn - or does that mean planes are worse polluters than volcanoes  :)

The last eruption is still a fond memory for me, I was beta testing the Skylight 4"F15 serial no 0001. Great planetary and lunar views due to the still atmosphere, no contrails, despite the dust

We were at SGL and it was just the best sky I have ever seen. I think the contrails add no end to poor visibility, there was some where a meteorological report that said that over the period the aircraft were grounded, the average temp went up by a few degrees.
