I look forward to meeting you all at this year's meeting in Mexico. It's the first time Digistar Users Group has held the annual conference in the Caribbean.
Our hosts in the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico, have made a lot of effort to work out an interesting conference program. We will meet first at Cha’an Ka’an, the Planetario de Cozumel. This planetarium is just a 10-minute walk from our conference hotel, the Grand Park Royal. We will also be hosted by SAYAB Planetario de Playa del Carmen and Ka’Yok’ Planetario de Cancun.

This year, E&S continues to offer free workshops in conjunction with the Conference. E&S and our hosts have worked to set up a classroom with workstations of the training. The training will also use the Cozumel dome. Workshops are offered in the days leading up to the conference.
Digistar 6 has many new features, and I am personally thrilled to be able to work with VR glasses outside the dome ("in the Dome").
Again we will meet and be able to exchange ideas with each other and with the engineers of E&S. We will be able to ask questions about our Digistar systems and see the demos submitted by our members.
Next year, in 2018, DUG will be again at E&S in Salt Lake City, Utah. We are still looking for a host for the 2019 meeting. According to our guidelines, in 2019 we should meet in the US or Canada.
I look forward to an interesting meeting and hope to see as many Digistar users as possible!
