When I find time to wade through 20Gb+ of HD footage, plus find some "creative commons" or non-copyright music thats suitable to add to it, but I also thought about splicing in some still shots from the forums in places too :blob10:

Mine are just too rubbish as I'm still learning. I'm processing now and although I've achieved a lot for me, they're still to poor to post. But can't wait to see everyone else's pics!

Well here are a few from me folks.

What a great event, it was an awsome weekend.

Unfortunately, I'm still an Image Virgin, but that will be rectified.

I, and every other attendee at SGL7, are indebted to the Organisers of the Event, It was a cracker, and even the weather enjoyed our company :blob10:.

So good to meet Faces instead of Names too.

Here's the Pics, They aren't earth shattering, but shows some of what went on:hello2:.

Ron.

Brilliant photos, Peter. You even made the Hereford light pollution look good.

Now go and catch up on some beauty sleep....:o

BTW I noticed there were other non-SGL campers at the site (They had no telescopes :blob10:) - how did that go with regards to local light pollution issues?

Great images everyone, keep 'em coming.

Ron - lovely photos that make me wish we could do it all again this weekend. Were Neil and Mick nicking that tent???

Kev - that crescent moon and solar shot are awesome, as was MikeP's breakfast.

Peter - Beautiful widefields and looking forward to seeing your panos.

Rapallokid - Nowt to laugh at, they're very nice shots.

Alex - Cool pano and yet another great breakfast pic. Maybe we should have a new section for imaging bacon and eggs...

No wonder Adrian knew where the moon was, it's only 1/2" from his finger. Even I could find that!
