  15. Had a great night over Cosford on Sat 10th with Steve and Paul.Got there after 10pm straight from Willenhall bonfire, a little cloudy to begin then total clear sky with the Milky Way overhead. A great sight considering we were only a few mile outside Wolverhampton. Have never seen it from my backyard. This was the first time I tried the setting circle and the wixey and pleased with the result but it still needs some improvements. Saw a lot of of new objects thanks to Paul first being the Andromeda Galaxy followed by M1 M31 M32 M81 M82, the Eskimo, the Hyades We had some great views of Jupiter saw the bands clearly, best I've ever seen Tried out two new BST's 8mm & 25mm was well impressed have had them about 9 months first time out of the box. Saw Neptune through Steve's scope There was also a few meteors some leaving impressive trails in the night sky The Orion nebula was a great sight also. All in all we had a good 4hrs or so I really enjoyed it; Thanks again for the guided tour Paul Looking forward to the next night I hope its soon Cheers Pat
