  1. I really enjoyed looking through all the entries for this challenge - really shows what can be achieved with short exposures. Very well done to the winners!
  2. Firstly, apologies for the lack of notice - unfortunately I've not been very well in the past week or so including a hospital stay and now largely bed ridden. This has delayed work I wanted to do on the new forum update but as a security release was announced I had little choice but to rush and get the upgrade prepped and installed to ensure the forum is fully up to date. This upgrade has introduced lots of changes - we will look at them in turn in the next few weeks but to begin with, things should mostly be the same - the major change is instead of likes there is now reactions. The theme has been updated - it may need more tweaking but I think it's pretty close to what we had before for now. I've taken the decision to remove the 'Simple' theme for now as a tiny handful of people were using it and every theme we use is another burden of testing and upgrading every time there is a new release. Instead I had made available the 'default' simple theme for those who want black on white text. Please report anything glaringly not working or broken in the usual way - the Bugs forum: https://stargazerslounge.com/forum/50-forum-suggestions-bugs-errors-and-foibles/ I will do my best to monitor everything and pick up any issues I see. Thanks for your understanding. Grant

  4. Wednesday 26th July there is a talk at Letchworth & District Astronomy Society (LDAS) by Nik Szymanek all about astrophotography. If you've not seen Nik speak before or come across his images it's definitely worth a look at his website: http://s175657640.websitehome.co.uk/CCDLandWebSite/index.html. He is an excellent speaker so I'm very much looking forward to attending! Full details here: http://www.ldas.org.uk/event/monthly-meeting-17/
