  1. my 4 forecasting sites (Cloudy Outside, Metcheck, Meteoblue and BBC) all currently suggest cloud cover until midnight. current conditions at abergavenny (6 miles from the site) at 2pm: 100% cloud cover with a medium breeze.
  2. I just spent a fab two and a half hours at the Blaenavon site with my new TAL 100R. Best views of Jupiter I've had! There's still ice everywhere, so do be careful, but the light on the mast building was off, thank goodness. Zero wind, lovely conditions. Not terribly dark - estimate mag 6 skies. Was disturbed a couple of times by other cars arriving briefly at the carpark, but I lit up the scope with my red headlamp and they generally scarpered.
  3. My god, those Russians know engineering, don't they! I just tried the left/right wheel tweak and it worked great thank you for that, lovely to know! I still haven't had a proper session with the scope yet, weather hasn't been playing ball!
  4. oh, just noticed the wind could be a factor... gah.
  5. right now, it's looking clear only after midnight on Friday night. If that keeps up, I'll make the trip. Anyone else?
  6. I was looking for a similar solution. Looks very nice indeed
