WADAS (Wakefield and District Astronomical Society)

Recommended Posts

Suprising how fast Catalina is moving, viewed this morning at 0230, looked a lot fainter than last I viewed it, Jupiter was excellent to view though, my second favourite planet.

Celestron x-cel lx 25mm arrived this morning to replace my standard 24mm I have had for nearly 12 month.

The Celestron focal reducer is on my scope now also.

These are reusable hand warmers not silicon implants by the way ;)

If they are re-usable why do you need so many? ;-)

Pause for thought⏳as I don't have internet on my mobile & don't have Facebook either, although Paul does have my email address, if the worst happened and SGL went down for a while I could miss out on something at short notice, do any of you exchange mobile numbers at all as a backup !!!!!!!

Might not be a bad idea, we probably all take for granted that we get SGL free.

For those of us with smartphones, we could always have a WADAS group, don't have to have every in your contacts list for that either, just add a number to the group.

Hi all, just a heads up to read the important security announcement on SGL as it explains a little more about why it was shut down overnight.

It asks us to change our passwords for security, and also mentions Tapatalk which I know some of you use.

Anyway, just thought I'd mention it as it contains some important information :)

so that's at the other end. The long parking bit rather than down by the boats?

I'm looking at the satellite view on google maps

Directions from my house are bringing me in along Goddlard Lane \ Windel Edge, and then getting me to turn in to the reservoir there. Should I carry on along Windel Edge and turn up Dunford Road towards the Red Apple Workers Cooprative?

This is going to be fun in the dark and snow :-)

Go up from windle edge ( ignore sailing club) and look for Holmfirth sign (on your left)  turn left there that's Dunford rd, drive a few hundred yards up there to res entrance on your left, follow to far car park

Thanks guys. That's what it's done, taken me into the sailing club. I'll find it - if not I'll just set up in a field....

I might drag Terry across later on after we have had our evening meal. Think there is a charge of £3 per adult. Just been on their website and I'm not sure what is going on tonight and it looks like it could be cloudy. Might go for an hour though to represent WADAS. I'll post on here again later on to let you know whether I'm going :)

I think they SGL are not using tapatalk at the moment. Iv tried to log on through tapatalk and it just goes blank.

I'm lost using it this way

You'll have to get used to it Mark

Reading the security update they are binning tapatalk compatibility due to it's security being out of date and flaky.

There will also be a new look to quite a bit of the Forum that's why for now some of its features have disappeared
