  1. Hello All, here`s a date for your diaries,i`m pleased to announce the dates for our Autumn star camp to be held at the award winning http://www.drumroamin.co.uk/ campsite run by Lesley and Ralph Shell. The dates are Wednesday 3rd October until Monday 8th October 2018. All bookings are to be made direct with the campsite, the fees can be checked with Lesley With any luck the earlier date this year may work to our advantage-----------time will tell. I will post later in the week just wanted to get the dates out there as i have had quite a few enquiries. Look forward to seeing new faces and seasoned regulars, Regards Mike
  2. On the evening of the 17th March in the north of Scotland the dancing lights of the aurora filled the sky and put on a mesmerising show (despite the misty conditions). Attached are a few of many wide angle shots of the aurora I obtained that evening. If you look closely at the images you can see the Plough - which will give a sense of scale to these wide angle shots. The images were taken near Strathy on the north coast of Scotland using an astro modded Canon 600D and 10-22mm Sigma wide angle lens (at 10mmFL). It's been a busy month for me, so it has taken a while to get a few pics processed. As a result these are not providing breaking news - I hope you enjoy seeing them nonetheless.
  3. My back garden isn't the most scenic spot I've photographed the northern lights from, but it is very convenient for just sitting back and enjoying the show ..... Timelapse footage of this display can be found here - http://www.flickr.com/photos/57299237@N05/12709581353/
  4. I'm ecstatic that I finally got a chance to see the aurora - I usually miss them whenever they make an appearance! It gave me a chance to try out my new lens (Samyang 14mm f2.8) with my Canon 70d, and I can tell it's going to be a firm favourite! Having never imaged the aurora before (and generally being pretty useless with processing software) I wasn't entirely sure how best to process them, but I think they turned out ok in the end!
  5. Hi we hold meet ups in and around the North end of the Galloway Dark Sky Park. Dalmellington, Loch Doon and other place about Ayrshire. I will post any public meets if anyone wishes to come along. Also if anyone is in this neck of the woods and needs some local info we would be glad to help.
