I'm waiting on confirmation of the dates for something else (and term) but hope to at least pop up for a cuppa (bringing cake of course!)

Tich,  your interior fabric looks the same as the cushion covers in the truck camper which I had back in California.   :smiley:

Mine was made in France but they stopped making them in 1990, the early 60's ones were just made out of ply.

Although mine isn't made out of much more lol.

We haven't even mentioned Tony's inflatable tent that's a clever bit of kit as well.

Mrs lovit reply to a TENT IN OCTOBER cannot be printed , the swear box filter would MELT  !!!!!!!!

Lenny

LOL that made me chuckle still I do remember the frost on the tents from the first meet.

  just remember if you are having electric and ur in a tent to bring an extra long cable as lenny found out!      althrough im happy to make teas if needed :)

That reminds me I have a 50 meter EHU lead I must remember to pack it this time around for anyone who may need to borrow it.

Steve - pitch 13 - thu to sun
Flibble - pitch 11 - tue to sun
Lenny - pitch 25 - wed to sun
Mike - pitch 6 - thu to sun
Bats - pitch 5 - fri to sun
Garethmob - pitch 4 - thu to sun (I'm guessing you're pitch 4 Gaz?)

Reddoss - pitch 7 - thu to sun

I've posted details in the astro events section so probably would be best to use that thread from now on to carry on SW3 discussions. Here's the link.

Hope everyone has enjoyed the easter period and not scoffed too many eggs :p

If last year was anything to go by Gaz the thread will die a death over the summer months as the dark nights disappear and then get rejuvinated at the end of summer when the anticipation of dark nights starts to come into view.

Its looking a really good group already - a few more in the months just preceedeing would make it a brilliant event- our largest to date probably.

No nothing yet Gaz but as Steve says it'll probably go quiet now the light nights are arriving. Autumn probably seems a long way off right now so fingers crossed interest will pick up nearer the time. There is only a handful of spaces left right now plus we don't know what spaces are/will be taken in the Oaks by non-astro campers!

The Oaks is  pre booked for 13 pitches at present. Mrs Rees has kept all those pitches listed for the SW3. To be fair to her we need to let her know the final numbers a few weeks before the event if we don't fill the Oaks.

If we do, and there are more who want to attend then they will have to use what other pitches are available near the main group.

Thought I would bring attention to this thread again in case anyone missed it. September is still far enough away to comfortably make plans to attend, for those who might be interested in our Annual South Wales * Star Party *   :smile:

Hi Tony,

          I bought a 2 inch Farpoint Cheshire eye piece for the MN190.

I have not used it yet as the collimation you did at SGL9 is still holding strong!
