    Trip to kelling heath tonight.

    Weekend trips and drawing a blank at Elan happen too often. But as the mobs motto goes.."if you don't go you'll never know" !!...as Pete says one trip to darker skies can deflate your enthusiasm for home observing.
  4. Best view I've had of M1 was from here...much better than Lucksall, tho there are trees to avoid.

    Is aperture king?

    We all could argue that certain scopes are better than others but in the end it's down to personal taste/usage/targets/budgets.

    Astro inspiration for 2019

    Plans?....to get out more with Swampthing and Mapstar....a bonus if it's clear! It's the company and remoteness I enjoy. I've had so many planned sessions end up fruitless that now I go observing with a hey how attitude, gets too frustrating if I don't....clear skies.
