  1. All the best to FLO, IKI and all involved with this project. Looking forward to following it. I have had experience using remote telescopes with @Helen primarily through Faulkes and SALSA. They are a great resource for everyone involved. As for science imaging. Would you consider opening the observatory up to 'Targets of Opportunity' (i.e. GRB, SN, X-ray systems in outburst etc) to contribute to the data collection of those systems?
  2. An extension to @Helen's comment, welcome from Newport . Helen I think a star party in our area is over due I need to get out more often lol
  3. Very sad news, but completely understand. Thank you to everyone who put so much into organising this. It has always been great to attend and I will very much be looking forward to the next Hope everyone has a good weekend and can get the equipment out for a little bit
  4. Darn it, bit late, but can I have 1st refusal if it happened to become available again
  5. @wormix I will be arriving on the Thursday as well. Look forward to meeting you :)
  6. Old picture time....I'm sure my parents and brother won't mind me sharing this.......... I was in Dartmouth for the day, it is one of my childhood memories, although I do remember the British weather getting in the way and us only being able to see little bits of the eclipse when the clouds thinned a bit.
  7. @Helen That looks great, we will definately need the try that out......maybe a cheeky meetup before hand to 'hone our skills'
  8. I have some experience of Radio Astronomy from my Uni days, would be very interested if you're doing a talk on it I would love to try it out again one day
  9. Booked Thursday - Sunday. If SGL/FLO or anyone needs a hand during those days please give me a shout .
  10. Hey :) Believe I still have access to Faulkes, will happily queue up some observations :D take me back a few years. Hope all at FT are doing well :) Looking forward to seeing you and Paul on Thurs.
  11. Hello and welcome from just over the bridge in Newport
  12. Hey, Just a quick message to say big Thank You to everyone who purchased a bracelet from @Helen or myself at the weekend. We managed to raise £150 for Astro Cymru which I have just send over to them If I missed anyone who would like to purchase a bracelet, I have a couple left with me so please either get in touch or head over to the Astro Cymru website at http://www.astrocymru.co.uk/web/ where you can purchase them from Emma directly. Many Thanks again. Simon
  13. Oooo think I still have access to these Some spectra might be interesting, a bit different but still interesting and I have used before..... My favourite observation using these was the Eagle Nebula in H-alpha, although pretty low in the sky at the moment if would be nice to have that done again

    Arrived

    Looks good hoping for a dry spell when I set up on friday Can just about see my pitch on the left there
  15. Great to hear about the enthusiasm. My 6 year old Neice asks me lots of questions about space etc and I love to hear the ones that really stump me. When I did Physics at GCSE and A-level they avoided space as much as they could (I don't know why) so I hope they put it into the curriculum as much as possible, it is a facinating subject
