  1. Well done everyone - some super entries and some very worthy winners
  2. Monthly meeting and talk tonight at Letchworth District Astro Society - “13 Journeys Through Space and Time”, a talk by Colin Stuart. Starts at 7:30, details on the LDAS website:
  3. It looks like there https certificate expired yesterday which is why you are getting that warning. They just need to renew it and it should then be fine.
  4. Bookings are now open - full details on our shiny new SGL SP website: Pitch prices are the same as last year but food costs have gone up a little bit but, these haven't changed for a number of years so it was overdue. Look forward to seeing you all there Cheers, Grant
  5. That image is a slightly odd one because it's actually hosted off site on Facebook rather than SGL - SGL has an image proxy in place to ensure it's served via https but it looks like an issue with embedding a Facebook image that's causing this.
  6. There have been no changes to the system that would've affected this functionality. If it's happening on all images, then I would suggest something has changed with your browser - either a setting or a browser update has changed something because it still works as expected for me. If it's just one image then it could be that the format of that image is not something your browser is able to open - the smaller version may work as it's a thumbnail in a browser friendly format. If you let us know if it's the latter and which image it's happening with then we can take a look.
  7. That's looking really nice Daz! Great to see you posting some images and getting some clear skies - fingers crossed for some more
  8. All - just a reminder, this imaging challenge ends 31st May
  10. Hi guys - please do enter It would be great to see some single 30s entries and we will pay attention to this in the judging - it isn't just about who has managed to get 40 hours of data using thousands of pounds worth of kit
  11. No problem 🙂 I think there is some confusion with Lucksall too - I will clear this up with them tomorrow.
  12. Please do cancel and book through the official booking - I'm not sure why they let you book directly it shouldn't be possible so I will double check with them.
  13. All, Bookings for SGL SP 2017 will open on Friday 26th May 2017 at 10am. Links will be posted here then and full details and information will be posted in the next week or so. Cheers, Grant
  14. Bookings haven't opened yet! So if you've booked directly with the campsite you will not be put with the main star party and will be in a different area of the campsite - you also won't be registered to receive a welcome pack, name badges etc... or be able book food. Pleae don't book directly with the campsite.
  15. Very nice! I didn't even know you could use the polemaster as an imaging camera as well!
