It will show you where the turning is to the large car park

And drive down to the end of the car park. That's where we 'lurk' :)

How's the sky looking out there?

Had a pleasant couple of hours in the back garden. Did a bit of visual, but really wanted to make sure I could get the DSLR focused on the William Optics 110 using the field flattener.

Had a quick go at M45 The Pleiades, but the clouds came in thick and fast at around 8pm so I decided to pack up.

Not going to be heading down to Winscar, but I hope it stops clear for you all down there.

Was nice to just have a look through a few EPs tonight :)

My only usable image from tonight, but I'm not concerned as my chief objective was to get out and see a few stars, and achieve focus with the DSLR

Hope the clouds have stayed away for anyone who has gone to Winscar :)

Peppa Pig is pretty mind numbing, although it was the cause of much family amusement when one of the kids came out with "Uncle Kevin looks like daddy Pig cos he wears glasses"
