Safe trip all all attending , P's wind has all but one now as well, just a bit of rain
  5. hi derek, last nite was good clear skies, clouded over at times but on the whole not bad, turned to rain later and tad windy, sporadic wet weather today but that was forcast, all on our own just now
  6. Hi David clear as a bell just now got polar alignment done and scope on, just doing visual tonite as there are still general campers on site and white lite. If rest of the week like this we will be doing well, safe trip down m8 see you guys soon.
  7. Well guys that's us arrived and partly set up, field looks really good and no flooding or water logged, walking around with soft shoes on and not wet, sun's out but part cloud as well, as usual this place has its own little micro climate. Hopefully get polar aligned tonite and who knows after that.
  8. Aye Derek especially if it's [removed word] down,
  9. Not all we welcome any malt, single or a double
  10. Hi guys on Derek note, iam sure you are all aware but remember face coverings in scotland is still a requirement, and watch out for the fuel bandits at the border.
  11. Hi derren geared up no ready hmmm, not planning in bringing as much kit this time round try and keep the car down to just slightly overloaded, hows Mike doing not had a chance to call , be good to see all the old faces and hopefully some new as well ,
  12. Yea we were done about a month ago as well, Dawn is still working from home, iam still out and about, just keeping a low profile as is most. Not much else happening, fitted an eberspacher heater to the obsy and insulated the inside of it, got a wee closed off bit in it now that keeps us warmer when roof off, not the same as being out in dark skies but better than nowt.
  13. Hi Ian, Hope your all ok too, spoke to Lesley todaybjust confirming w3 are booked for autumn, how's the handle bar mousy getting on ? Might see a different you in October , have you heard from any of the other guys, Damian etc, hope there all ok,
  14. Hi Derek, Just coming out of hybernation up here, takes a wee tad longer to get warmed up, glad to hear your still your witty self, as Ian said a few drams to get the juices going. Hope you and yer good Lady are in fine health and have had your covid jab. Stay safe bud
  15. So guys n gals no camp this week, massive withdrawals, sitting out in the obsy with Dawn a few wee tears in our eyes, looking through scope at clouds n rain, o the joys , hope this wee post finds you all safe and well, thinking of you all and the dark rainy skies we are missing, hopefully the November bash will be kind to us, stay safe troops and see you all in November.
  16. Again Derek well said, we have had the luxury of Lesley and Ralph's welcome and amazing surroundings for years they have to make a living same as everyone else, and I believe she had to turn away some regulars this time , not sure about others but I would rather be down there than stuck on some take it or leave it go as you please location, at least you know you can safely leave your lit out and it will be there when you return. Maybe ranting a bit but some people just dont appreciate the efforts that go into this amazing event, that makes it a great venue for us all.
  17. a post that was needed though Derek, come wind rain or clear nites were all there for the duration. I have to move a few days about in spring cos holidays were messed up, still be there from the tuesday onwards though. hope you and annette are keeping ok, catch up later
  18. Come on man, I can't get everything rite , the strip down was fairly easy, made a wee tool to remove the lock ring, then marked orientation of first glass removed it removed sealing ring and spacers, the same for inner glass, used the usual camera cleaning solutions with lint free clothes etc, slow old process but worth in the end.
  19. Stripped down the front objection glasses and cleaned, all back together now and nice and crisp, took a couple of hours getting the crap off the glasses.
  20. Hi all that's us back home and all unpacked, another great star camp it was good to see old and new faces, and sad that a few of the regulars couldn't make it, there's always the spring one to look to. Hope you are all keeping well, and stay safe out there. Again a big thanks to all who attended for making it another memorable star camp.
  21. Still blowing, but skies looking bit more promising, over cast at present but slowly clearing can see some blue sky now, field squigy as expected with over nite rain, defo looking better than it was this morning hopefully clear up later and wind drops.
  22. Windy .com?? Thought you old sailer just used a wet finger, a at least the scopes haven't blown over
  23. At lesleys now , got the place to ourselves just now, no chance of setting up yet that's for tomorrow. Lesley was saying any cancellations won't be offered out due to covid, keeping us as spaced apart as posible. Safe trip to all comming it'll be a strange one the year.
  24. So then Mike only half a car full this time hmmm
