  2. How flat in the site on average? My sister is looking to book a family holiday there but my Dad has problems walking up inclines due to his heart, so that puts longleat and lake district one out of the question.

    Matt.

    I've been a few times Matt. If you look on a map of the park - the area to the east of the main central is on a  downward incline - not massively steep - other than that its fairly flat. When we went last time we phoned up and requested a specific lodge - costs a bit more though. I'm sure if you phoned up and spoke to them they would be able to discuss somewhere suitable.


  3. Hi all,

     

    I just e-mailed the WADAS committee about this but I thought I'd cast the net a bit wider.

     

    Soupy has done a great write up for the Wakefield Express about the planned Geminid observing event they have said they will go with.

     

    He sent me an image of a geminid but they are concerned it might not come out very well in the paper.

    Does anyone have any images that might be better in the paper? Less dark. Doesn't really need to be of a gemind. Could be of someone using a telescope or something like that? Preferably landscape? Something astronomical related to the society or observing.

    Let me know

    Cheers

    Sam

  4. Please excuse me butting in on your society conversation but if anyone has a problem with SCT collimation I'm happy to sort it out FOC, I also have an artificial star so a clear night is not essential!.   Cheers.  Peter.

    Thanks Peter. That's a really kind offer. I tried using a Duncan Mask on a bright star but I struggled a bit. It might be OK - but I'd just like to check it. I'll PM you as to when is the best time to come up to Todmorden.

    Sam
