  1. Well done folks, unbelievable skills on show here :)
  2. Was good to see you Steve, reminiscing about Jura, and the time you left our tent sideways. A memory not to be forgotten. One of those classic moments in time Hopefully see you next year for a good catch up and a small sherry David
  3. Hi Andy, this phone has Astrophotography Mode. You stick it on a tripod, it takes 15 second exposures, over 4 minutes and stacks them on the phone. That's it, point and shoot.
  4. Google Pixel 4 phone picture in Astrophotography mode. Taken at Galloway.
  5. Lesley is considering attaching an extension for Mike's ancillary equipment
  6. This is text from a Facebook post I made, I hope you allow. Apologies for a short disjointed report last night. I had prepared for our meet up, albeit it was going to be a wee tribute to Al whom I reported had passed away. I decided to use all the equipment as a tribute in my own small way. So car was packed with all his stuff and I decided to do an old school evening, no goto, no power, just a manual, find it yourself type of night. I arrived around 7.30 to find John McRobbie with all his kit assembled. We unpacked my car, thanks John, and set up the kit. Sky was looking great, and we
  7. This may have been posted before, but really like the look of this Star Adventurer wedge. Can't find it anywhere else but AliExpress, good price also. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32822479423.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.6a0665faBLCKhh&algo_pvid=8c442aef-eeb0-4eb8-a0fa-0c0bfbfb51f7&algo_expid=8c442aef-eeb0-4eb8-a0fa-0c0bfbfb51f7-11&btsid=0b0a182b15977908541533550e111a&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_,searchweb201603_
  8. Lesley posted this pic on Facebook, site looks amazing.
  9. Hi Ships and Stars, if you do Facebook, we have a little group called Astronomy Scotland with almost 700 members from all over, not just Scotland. You'd be made most welcome. Some of the folk on there meet up at weekends at various venues around Scotland. As Adrian mentioned we had a mini Star Party at Powrie Park in Abernethy a few years back and were blessed with 3 clear nights which was a huge bonus. Best wishes David
  10. Oi you, of course we do! "tumbleweed rolls across forum floor" If nothing else, we enjoy our stay, that seems to rub off on others, we have a laugh, a dram, chat to anyone who'll put up with us. And, when the weather permits, get some great skies and pics. We are like marmite.
  11. Wondering who you could be referring to here Adrian. Thanks for the kind words - I do hope you guys get something sorted and weather plays ball. Hoping to get down for the winter meeting. David
  12. Just heard that The Astronomer Royal for Scotland, John Brown suddenly passed today - so sad, a true legend that remembered Mike only a few days ago. David
