  1. Skys have been pants this year, im still considering selling my astro gear, hardly use it these days
  2. lol, im thinking of it, then may plan something else
  3. I hardly come on here now, plus the weather is rubbish, not used my scope for a long time now, may as well sell it
  4. I would recomend, if you have a laptop used for Astronomy, that turning windows automatic updates off would be a good idea, causes too many issues. Also stops those momments when you get out into the field and the laptop needs to install updates that its downloaded the previous day. You can always run updates manually every so often if you wanted to as and when
  5. I was busy last night, by the time i got home just after 8, had some food, i just didnt feel like setting up and there was some cloud forecast. Hope everyone else had fun
  6. Who gets home at this time Ill be out tonight if its clear, some forecasts have some cloud around from about 10pm, but hopefully it should only be a small ammount. Might stop in my garden tonight, ill see
  7. yea, i went out, scope stayed inside
  8. ive had a long day at work today, id like to get out tonight somewhere with dark skies but looks like i might be staying in the back garden
  9. mine would be if it wernt for wakefield, its ok higher up, its not like all my northern sky is orange, just some of it
  10. Where i am at Royston, despite being about 7 miles from wakefield town centre it seems most of my light pollution is from Wakefield, my northern sky is much worse than my southern sky usually and for that reason i dont normally observe much in the northern sky. Wakefield needs to improve there street lights!
  11. Yea your probably right. The street lights near me though all point down. So the one in the next street doesn't shine into my garden. They should all be like this gain. That one near you looks unjustified
  12. Usually the councils are very good about installing covers on Streetlights
