  1. If any of you are interested in a star party in East Suffolk, we have been hosting a Star Party every March and October at Hinton, near Saxmundham, Suffolk at a newly developed Caravan and campsite, Haw Wood Farm, for the last 5 years. It is £12 per pitch per night with electricity hook up (adapter needed) call Dan or Georgina (see link below). Some of you here may know about it; on good nights we have had a SQM reading of 21.75 - it can get dark enough to see the Zodiacal Light! Many local society members meet up: Norwich, Castle Point, North Essex, OASI (Orwell), DASH (local) and Breckland among others and it is generally friendly and welcoming (if we can see you in the dark!). Saturday 14th we run an event: a skytour or talks in the cafe, dependent on weather. Unfortunately, timing clashes with the SGL star party but we're a long way from it. See link for details: http://www.hawwoodfarm.co.uk/things-to-do/events-hawwood/
  2. Thanks Steve - I'm slow to check SGL (not my usual method of communicating). I went with the ASI 130 (USB 3) and it's great. Now I'm starting to wish I'd gone for Monochrome though! a 60mm is so much better than a 40mm for resolution on the sun. Dan
  3. Apologies Steve - I see you have a Point Grey Blackfly. Is it value for money? Easy to use? Good software? USB3? I was looking at a ZWO ASI 130. Dan
  4. Hi Steve, Lovely pics indeed. I really hope those sunspots bring us a beautiful aurora in the next few days! Our club has a 40mm double stacked Coronado and I need a good planetary cam to go with it - any recommendations? Which of your extensive selection did you use? I'm looking for a versatile one for planets, etc. on my 8" - so colour chip might be a good compromise, despite loss of resolution with Ha. Dan @ Breckland AS.

    Les Granges

    Just seen this - I've wanted to go to Les Granges for ages and want to go even more now! One of our society's members has been and thoroughly recommends it. Hawskmoor - we're actually quite close to you in SW Norfolk.
