    Stunning image, Gav - you really ought to take up photography as a hobby or even a profession .....

    I love both of these time lapse sets - they capture the mood so well and add such dynamism to the scene.

    Just to prove that it wasn't all rain and flooding, I captured this Sunset at the SGL Star Party on 11th October with my iPhone as several of us walked down to the cafe for dinner. I have called the image 'Californian Sunset' for reasons that many deep sky images will hopefully appreciate!

    A big thank you

    Hi John, It was indeed brief and I had hoped to have a chat with Jess as well but she was clearly a little embarrassed so I didn't push it! Next year then .............

    A big thank you

    We left the Star Party this morning having enjoyed a fantastic week at Lucksall and strangely, both our first and last nights presented some really good skies! I enjoyed this Star Party more than any other I have attended despite the pretty appalling weather but the fantastic marquee kindly paid for by FLO and the wonderful camaraderie that brings out the very best in SGL members dismissed the clouds, rain and flooding easily. I only wish now that I had attended the whole of the Quiz rather than just the last round - next year, I won't make the same mistake as I now realise that it is not the quiz that is important but the banter and inclusion that is what it is all about. Well done attendees, you all played your part!

    A dream come true

    Excellent project and nicely executed. You will love the Pulsar Dome.

    What did the postman bring?

    It would be my pleasure, Helen
  9. That's lovely with some great detail!

    Emergency repairs

    Oh yes, I always have a roll of Sellotape and some cable ties handy - would they help? You see, this is why I have a caravan ......... .... although apparently, I will be towing the darn thing through a storm

    Emergency repairs

    Just in case it is needed by anyone, I will be bringing a small tool kit with me including soldering and crimp tools, a test meter, continuity tester etc. I can't promise to fix all your tech. problems but suitable test and repair kit is always a good start! I will be on pitch 21 (Kingfisher) unless Lucksall have to change this because of ground conditions.

    SGL 2018 Pitch Plan

    Yup, that would make sense - that nylon cord was pretty strong ....

    SGL 2018 Pitch Plan

    No offence but I'm not sure you've quite covered everything but hey ho we all had to go through it and most of us came out the other side - although there was the poor bloke, Jonathon B... I wonder what happened to Jonathon - anyone know?
  14. Oooooh, Oouuccchh, that sounds very unpleasant. The good news is that these mounts are remarkably resilient and you really would have to go some to stretch the belts - fingers crossed.
