Haha, yes I saw that, but with postage it comes to £26, which is only £4 cheaper than getting it new straight from Lee, plus he'd probably knock us a couple of quid off anyway lol ;)

How much discount do ya normally get from greenwitch.

Matt.

Think it depends on the product, but I believe he tries to give WADAS members 5 to 10% :)

Lol ill take my 1200. My first meet with the society was only 12 months ago at the chris Linton lecture at qegs, so I don't know when my first post was, can you tell Paul? But 1200 over a year is 3.2 posts a day. All quality,interesting and factually correct of course :)

Opps [removed word] lol. It says I've had 1303 since match 2011, that's when I joined this forum, but didn't really post. 4 per day is a bit bad isn't it. Opps.

I'm guessing I win the most posts per day title too then?

Am I going to have to scrape more data and do a proper analysis?

Didn't you do a proper one in the first place :)

I think I know the answer which will be a yes. I think I've been posting for less time than vicky and I'm not that far behind her.

That's the figure I had, 40 seems about right. Just loaded the car up, not sure where I'm off yet. If it's clear I might go to winscarr but we shall see.

Cheers Neil, settings were 30 sec exposure ISO 1250 as far as I can remember, white balance was on tungsten to get rid of the orange light pollution.
