Saturday evening in my awning

Is there a collective noun for a bunch of mods in an awning?

I posted this on the solar sub-forum but here's a slightly better processed version of the photo above (and twice the size!):

Getting in a bit of last minute solar viewing before packing up:

My solar image pic - very un-fancy, taken using my compact camera pointed in the eyepiece. Surprised it didn't come out half-bad, lots of sunspot activity:

And how could I not post up my own picture of our lovely ducks !

Peter we have a few inches of snow in Hereford so it would have made things interesting if SGL8 had been this weekend.

Hi Mark,

And last weekend some members were going home early because of the rain.

Last year, it was T-shirts and shorts!

It has snowed here in Kings Langley..... Still wearing my shorts...

Will next year's event be in brilliant sunshine during the day and clear skies at night?

Let's not forget that this year given the unfavourable weather we did get views

on five of the seven nights....

All the best.

Cheers

Adrian

Just a couple of site pics from me.

The 'pop-up' astro-shelter. Luckily we had good weather for 'pop-up' and 'wrestle-down'. It was done in a few minutes.

Hi Adrian

It was so nice to meet you in person, I don't know if you remember me, but I enjoyed your recollections on your experiances in the forces, going in to confined spaces in the dark, it sort of bought me down to earth, to listen to you recount your experiances and what you had to go through, hope to meet you at SGL9.

Well obviously, it is a mob of mods,

and a glob of global mods, BUT:

is it an accolade of admins?

Deary me, I'll get me coat!

Today is my 1st proper day out of sick bed following SGL.

Turned out I had a sinus infection and then I poisoned myself with the wrong medicine from the pharmacy, Im celiac and the stuff they gave me was not suitable for celiacs. so I didnt eat and went severely downhill. Taken a week to recover.

So sorry I didnt get the chance to mingle but I dont think my spreading my germs around would have been appreciated.

Thanks to all mods and admin who put this together, just wish I could have enjoyed it a bit more.

Oh and Daz, I hope you didnt catch your cold from my germ infested pitch next to yours.

I'm so sorry you've been so ill, Phij. Coeliacs is a horrible disease. You certainly have to watch those "medicines". I've nearly come to grief being prescribed one drug that would have reacted nastily with another!

I hope you're up and about properly now.

Looks like you guys n gals had great fun despite the weather doing her worst. Some fair images returned and interesting scopes.

In the end it looks well that I wasnt eally able to make it, one night in the rain wouldnt have made for a great memory although I intend doing my utmost to make SGL9. I just hope it isnt in April as that is when I get married, sigh always something, :grin:

Hoping to make SGL9 or maybe 10 depending on how quickly I can finally get round to learning to drive.

In the memetime however, I found this and felt the need to share
