  2. Yes a very enjoyable if but brief visit from me but happy with the seeing on Wednesday. I had to head back earlier than I would have liked but thats life . Seems everyone has had a good time despite the weather, but thats Galloway for you!! Safe journey home to all and perhaps see you again the spring. Cheers to The Demon Barber once again.
  3. Hi Freen’s!! National forecast is gash for midweek, any better local forecasts giving me some hope for the journey down? Please have the Samaritans phone no to hand, 12 months of waiting in anticipation for zero precipitation ...
  4. Im sure an exchange will be the order of the day....... Hope the skies are playing fair tonight, forecast is encouraging.
  5. My arrival has been set back till Thursday work dictating the order of the day , forecast not looking too good until Saturday when a carpet of stars has been promised, I will be bringing a rather nice and unusual malt at this occasion and you are all invited for dram ... rationed on course !!
  6. Watching the reports now daily, Adrian is da man! All going well I’ll be down Wed-Sat . Looking forward to some banter and good seeing. Just need to decide one scope or two..
  7. I will call Ralph and Leslie tomorrow to book up, the thread has been unusually quiet as mentioned above, I know a couple from my club Tweedale Astronomical society are booked,... so Mr Demon Barber... have we any idea of numbers yet for this stargazers extravaganza ?

Here is a pdf of some interesting stuff, skip past the first pages on torches and dress code ...http://carolrpt.com/astroguidev9complete.pdf
  9. Sounds like I made the right call, It can be a great place when the stars shine but when the wind and rain comes in .......Looking forward to Autumn already on the first day of summer ... with snow forecast next week.....
  10. Count me out, nothing going right, and not worth the migration trek for a single night, see you in the Autumn. Thats all folks!
  11. Watching the forecasts... not so good, work is manic at the moment so no point stressing out and leaving it to sit and watch rain, still hopeful for maybe a Friday and Saturday night .. keep some of the gold stuff...and Keep up the excellent reports Adrian and Andy K...
  12. Well all going well and with some luck thrown in I hope to arrive on Thursday and leave on Sunday morning (all weather permitting .... dont mind the cold or frost but pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeze none of the wet stuff) , will be slumming it in the van... playing with tents and especially drying them out is not my idea of fun....looking forward to it, the last visit had great skies on the last night.(as usual..)
  13. I see there is a good ISS pass around 19:26 in the southern sky on the 4th October.
