  1. Hello Tom. I've been to Tucson a few times and called at Starizona, plus visited some of the observatories. I really liked the place. Rich
  2. Just up the road from you and it's just the same. Virtually nothing since late November. Just about stopped looking at the forecast, it's all so predictable.
  3. I'll accept anything at the moment. Dead loss this winter has been and tonight has descended into rain - would you ******* believe it!!!
  4. You did well to get that. What a total write off this winter has been. At my wits end - can't buy a clear sky, no matter what the weather forecasters say.
  5. Peter, The park hasn't taken a final decision on an IDA application. Let's hope they give it the green light. They have done a lot of the groundwork. Richard

    Iain - pretty quiet I think. Especially this time of year. The north east has had a bit better of it than Yorkshire as far as I can tell, but the long range forecast is not good for the north and west.. Oddly my last two clear spells coincided with a lovely time at Kielder and again in Galloway. Apart from that bleak....

    Fair geographical spread of replies so it's been a misery everywhere. Got a Dutch friend and she says it's been hopeless there too. By the time this improves there'll be no dark sky left.

    In my part of the world this has been one of the cloudiest winter observing seasons I can remember. How are other folk getting on. Am I being paranoid?
  9. To update this thread the dark sky lighting scheme got the go-ahead from the national park so onwards and upwards.
  10. Good to have you on board Andreas. WILLKOMMEN.
  11. Adam, yep does seem that way - ZWO.
  12. Actually in answer to my own question are these ZWO filters? Same bandpass.
  13. I see Atik is offering a cut-price deal on its own branded narrowband filters when bought with a camera. Does anyone have experience with these filters? Are they rebranded Chinese ones? Baader perhaps? Cheers Rich
  14. Very good narrowband sensor. I've used the 460 for quite a few years.
