  1. Some tweaks were made to the server earlier and things seem to have improved for me - anybody else still having issues?
  2. All, We are aware of some speed issues affecting the forum for some users at present. We are investigating and will post updates here as we have them. Thanks, Grant
  3. Hogwash - anybody who looks at your milky way works knows you’ve got an eye for these!
  4. Wow! Some stunning entries this month and it really split the judges with a widespread of voting! The winners are: Moonlit Caldera by James Milky Way Over Yosemite National Park by HunterHarling XRT-C and The Milky Way by Knight of Clear Skies Well done everybody

  7. Beautiful image - what a great composition! Like this a lot.
  8. I completely forgot about that! That barrier completely took me out - glad it was dark because I must’ve looked a proper wally!  Good to see you again Titch  Definitely going to get one of those red light head torches for the SGL SP (and a crash helmet!)

    Just a reminder - if you've booked a POD directly with Lucksall, I would recommend giving them a call this week or next to make payment if you haven't already done so - just to 100% confirm you've got one! If you haven't got a POD but want one, give Lucksall a call - last update I had was two non-electric pods left and potentially one with electric. Cheers, Grant

  11. The theme for the 18th challenge - September 2018 - is Globular Clusters! Start Date: 1st September 2018 End Date: 30th November 2018 Rules: The theme is globular clusters - nice and simple but there are some wonderful ones to image and explore over the next few months. We look forwards to seeing your entries! Prize: A personalised mug for 1st, 2nd and 3rd places featuring your image kindly provided by our sponsors FLO and a virtual trophy for your signature. -- RULES All data must be captured and processed by you (no collaborative entries). Data must be captured during the challenge start & end dates. Multiple entries are allowed but please start a new topic for each entry. Multiple submissions of the same image, processed differently, will not be accepted. -- To enter please add your image to the Imaging Challenge #18 Gallery (each challenge will have it’s own). Please post as much information as possible - when it was taken, how it was captured and processed, etc. The info won't necessarily be used for judging but will help fellow SGLers looking to learn and improve their knowledge and technique.

    SGL 2018 Pitch Plan

    Laura @ Lucksall confirms pitch 113 is straight off the road on to a hardstanding pitch so shouldn't be a problem. If you are concerned though, please give Lucksall a call and ask for Laura and she can talk you through it.

    SGL 2018 Pitch Plan

    I've contacted Lucksall to check what that pitch is like now and to let them know you are in a larger motor home - they may move you, will update the pitch plan as neccessary....

    Science Outreach event - Basildon

    Sorry - missed your PM, it's always best to PM an admin directly and not the 'Admin' account as that is only checked infrequently. No problem with posting this - same goes to anybody else - any sort of astronomy based outreach event is very welcome to be discussed and promoted here on SGL

    SGL 2018 Pitch Plan

    No neighbours yet I am guessing you specifically requested to go there, I've actually got you down as being in the 'V' but I'm not 100% sure what that is?
