WADAS (Wakefield and District Astronomical Society)


Recommended Posts

Hi Alex and welcome to our "little" thread.

I think Mark has covered it all - feel free to drop in and chat any time.

The website will give details of upcoming meetings and events, as well as the WADAS events thread.

Well, if the clouds keep clearing as they are doing, we might get a chance to spot the ISS passing over at 5.03pm at 58 degrees.

I'll give Tim Peake a wave as it passes over! :)

Hmmm, think it's just about typical the skies are clearing when we are booked for our curry.

Don't think I'll be in a fit state to do any viewing after the curry..... ;)

Moon is already up and looking lovely above the pink clouds of the sunset.

Might get my DSLR out ready for the ISS :)

My first light test image from last night's outing. 

taken at winscar last friday

Just a quick note, and picture, to announce that our baby daughter, Hayley, arrived on Sunday 24th at 01:20am weighing in at a healthy 7lb15oz. Mother and baby both now doing well and safely home.

Just had a good half hour doing some lunar imaging with the new Apo in the garden, in the middle of winter, with a t-shirt on! How mad!

Pretty pleased with the back of camera shots... Just gotta get them on the puter next.

Cloud has come over here now as well... Hope it clears just a little to see the ISS.

Yeah I can remember someone being out in minus temperatures in kielder with a t shirt on!  :tongue: It is a lot warmer than that though I've gotta admit

A couple of 15 second exposures from the 17.03 ISS pass. Was very fortunate in that the ISS was being hotly pursued by a thick bank of cloud! :)

Any tuition on how to combine my ISS photos into a single panorama shot would be greatly appreciated.

I remember as well... You lot were out getting drunk doing some observing while the kit was freezing over, I was running about like a mad thing trying to get the kids to bed. No wonder I had a t-shirt on! :p

That sounds awsome! Wish him good luck from me [emoji106]

Thanks Ryan, I will, Jimmy has scored 32 goals this season for Ossett Town U8's, Leeds Utd & Huddersfield have also been watching him, all four grandsons are good players.

Ps: Sky not looking too bad at moment, will check later and hoping to get out for half hour or so.

It's the ED80 yes, got it a couple of months ago... Didn't announce it as you'd all blame me for the clouds! ;)

Ah yea, you did mention it at the time. Think it was one of your Soupy bargains if I remember right ;)

Really looking forward to the curry night - just deciding whether to have a cheeky beer before Terry drops me off.....

That's fantastic! You must be really proud of him! Nothing like seeing your family do well. Good look to him.

I'll second everyone else. Cheers for a great evening and if I don't see you before I hope you and your families have a wonderful Christmas and new year and we'll all catch up at the AGM in Jan.

Great night and had a good laugh all evening.

The presentation ceremony went down well with a few raised eye brows. Brilliant thought there Paul.

Fantastic turn out with I think 17 attending in the end.

Curry was very nice and as others have said what a great group of people.

Really enjoyed it and if it is clear I'm sure there will be more than enough of us wanting to get out for a meeting.

Many thanks

Damian
