Not sure what weather we will get tonight, seems it might be clear to begin with cloud coming in front of some bad rain for tomorrow. and clouding over by midnight.

As your not coming to this one Mat<I can do the final shout for the go ahead.

It's a shame I can't come to this one. Blaenavon would be the perfect place to get first light with MY SKYLINER 200P DOB!

I'll have to wait until the next meet. :(

Good luck for tonight folks, Friday night down here in Newquay was absolutely stunning, naked eye fuzzies everywhere.

I actually live in Pontyclun.. it might be quicker for me to go up the a470 by passing Merthyr and over the Heads of the Valleys road. My knowledge of those ares is pretty hazy to be honest. Thanks for the co-ordinates!

Google is saying it will be quicker via M4, Newport, etc. Any suggested meeting point?

If you go via heads of Valley, get to Brynmar and get onto the B4248 towards Blaenavon. go to the end of B4248 and at Texaco garage turn left onto B4246.

Keep going until MONMOUTHSHIRS sign then turn right towards Radio Arieals.

I will be there at about 7:45pm

The Meeting tonight is ON, weather looks good,

Will be a half moon until about 9:30 but it is low so not a lot of light

First stars should be visable from about 7:45.
