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.

Well... That should make polar alignment of the barn door tracker a little easier. EQ5 polar alignment scope. Adjusted and calibrated for the next clear night ?

Met check has it clear for the woodhead tunnel rocks area which is not far from winscar. XC weather for dunford bridge the same. I've not checked the bbc

Ill probably be up for Tuesday night weather depending. Maybe just play it by ear. Bit early to predict the weather for Tuesday yet.

Sounds good buddy, there's always a good bit of scope build reading in the DIY section if it's cloudy :grin:

The clouds have given me time to do this lol. Now hoping for some distant night in the future where I might get chance to use it for 5 minutes ?

Fingers crossed for Tuesday night for you all, I'll not be there unfortunately. Might be back Wednesday onwards though so I'll keep an eye if you are out.

 

great looking barn door Ryan, and polar mod looks great.
