Hopefully, yes.

Ughhh...that sounds like typing...can't I just click something? I can use a few software packages, but I have no idea what creatures live inside the box making it work (or not!)

I will figure it out one day :headbang:

lol!!

We'll take a look at SGL7 and turn off all the un-needed stuff :D

I think Squiddy will be seeing lots of stars through the bottom of a lager glass (or would that be a cocktail glass?!).

The hotel looks like something out of james bond!

Only 2 and a bit weeks!

Woooooooooooooo!

Who needs a sun-kissed beach fringed with gently-rustling palms when you can stay in a soggy sub-zero field in squelchy river-meadow?!:D

(I was quite jealous to hear about the cocktails, though. I shall have to bring some Sainsburys ready-mix Margharita with me!)

I had a bit of spare time so started thinking about targets and info for the Star Party so I produced this PDF document of some basic details.

If it helps anyone great, if anyone wants to add to it just give me the information and I re-issue the document.

I've already updated the PDF information pack for the Star party :D. It now includes all of the ISS passes that will be visible during the Star party week, there is a belter of a pass before the sunrise on the Sunday morning.

Hi Kev,

Great piece of info, I am about to start my programme of what I want to see, this as a great start.

Slight error on the map of west of England.

Lucksall is about 50 miles north. The map is showing Bristol!!!!

However, definitely worthy of a Jaffa Cake or two.... plus a coffee!!!

See you there.

Cheers

Adrian

The map is showing the black dot over Bristol but I've double checked the Lucksall co-ordinates (N 52.01952, W 2.6309) I used in Heavens-Above and it is bang on top of the Buzzard tent lane in the campsite :D The graphic is an automated one directly taken from Heavens-Above.

If you come across anything interesting I'd be happy to add it to the pdf

Couple of newbie questions...

  • Where can I buy some red acrylic film for the laptops?
  • Does everyone put their tripod straight onto the grass, or should I get some pads or something? I've already bought a scope cover!

Cheers :D
