  1. I booked when leaving this years autumn event and I'm in from Tuesday 2nd to Tuesday the 9th. If what they are saying about the current situation with the pandemic carrying on then I can see the pitch restrictions still being in force with limited numbers. Looking forward to next years events
  2. Have a read if some of you haven't seen this in the observing reports section. Calvin's viewing report
  3. Brilliant stuff mate and a proper good read up of the event. I've yet to write anything down. The skies were not transparent but out of 6 nights I had 3 that were clear enough to do some viewing and timelapse's. The Friday was a triumph just in the fact that whilst skimming the hedgerow you managed to bag the omega neb. Don't think the dob could go any lower. Looking forward to the spring event and the next viewing session.
  4. Arrived home in just over 4 hours. Very good journey and really quiet. Cars more or less unpacked and most of the kit is away. Excellent time and great to see everyone. Looking forward to the spring bash.
  5. Jyst on with a bit of breakfast before the last of the packing and journey home. Always disappointing dropping the tent but I've beat the inclement weather that is set to roll in later today. Overall 3 out if the 6 nights the scope saw starlight and racked up several more targets. I will wrote a report later but the 4+ hours home will no doubt delay that. Great to see the regulars and good to see new faces. Safe onward journey to all travelling home today and looking forward to the spring event.
  6. Clear all night again Mike. Good session although I had to have an hours kip at midnight but the carried on to 6am. Derek had to bring a can of tomato soup down to plug in as the Ipad nearly ran out it was on for quite some time.
  7. I'm sure Derren would be able to sort it as we know the quality of his workmanship. Mentioning sinking though I heard there was comms problems again with the mount last night? I've an empty tin of mushroom and veg soup I can fetch over to sort it.
  8. From the warmth of the caravan an image from Derren. Rosette looks well
  9. Just turned in. Skies have been good tonight and everyone made the best of it. Lots of targets although not many new ones. Time for the eider now as I'm the last one on the site still out and about.
  10. Well the skies are nice and the site is filling up fast. Looks like the new arrivals have brought some clear skies with them. Safe journey to all travelling today
  11. According to that its looking promising but I used to use clear outside years ago but found it unreliable and a waste of fuel quite often. The view from the tent door is really reliable
  12. Just packed in as the clouds have become a lot more persistent and struggling with the views inbetween. The campsite has dried out with the breeze today which has been a constant companion but it has finally eased as night drew in. A couple of for me and a good night's kip ready for tomorrow night which is set to be very good by the sounds of it Safe journey to those who are travelling early tomorrow and look forward to the site filling up steadily through the day.
  13. Like getting aligned for an old bodger
  14. Totally lost. This sky safari thing just ain't working!!!
