    2012 Perseid shower

    Always look forward to the Perseids. Even get a good show in my light-polluted neighbourhood. Might seek out a dark sight this year, if the clouds go away

    Oh wow! Really?! That is excellent news, I'm so pleased. I'm looking to sell my Sw130 soon and put it towards an 8" dob, I'm sure I'll be nagging you for help

    I've posted my postcode (CF3) in the S. Wales group thread, Ganymede, so I imagine I will surface in a meet soon enough!

    Opinions Please

    What a lovely terminator, and great contrast. It's the shadows that make the moon look so good, especially with a good amount of 'space' around the edges... I think you've got a good balance. Just off to check out your M13... my favourite cluster

      The book was very poor, but the band! Probably one of most influential in history.

    First Attempt Saturn

    this is lovely Nigel. I'm not an imager, but it's cracking for a first attempt. You can see definition between the rings and the surface of Saturn as the rings cross over the front, which I think really adds depth. What are you planning to do next time you image Saturn? Anything different, experiment a bit? Amanda

    Educational Activity for 9yr

    The sheet is excellent, zakkhogan. If you get on well with Ursa Major and have good seeing, you could give M81/M82 a bash. There's a nice contrast between the two galaxies, and, with a decent FOV, it'd give a good sketching opportunity. Be something for her to get her teeth into!
