SGL 10 Chatter :)

Recommended Posts

Just did a live interview on BBC Hereford and Worcester explaining the arrangements for the Eclipse Outreach event at Madley. Gave a plug for SGL and saying members were supporting the event at Madley.

Look forward to clear skies tomorrow morning.

I am coming out early this afternoon and this evening to hand out your breakfast tokens. See you later.

Hoping to leave around 1 ish as soon as I'm packed. Should be there by 4pm if everything goes smoothly...

Note to self, remember to pump tyres up to correct pressure for maximum load! I have a record of bursting them!

Please think about those who are stuck at work, I'll be able to look out of the window (if I'm lucky).

I'll be arriving Sat p.m at the same time as the cold front!!!!

When's the next solar eclipse in the UK?

Hi,

The weather here at 08:00 am was 50 shades of grey....

Now there is some blue clouds over-riding those grey ones.

The café breakfast was good.

Currently, it is too cold to sit outside with my shorts on, so having a hot cup of tea in the tent.

Saw some stars last night, but the seeing conditions not great. Orion present, Sirius and Jupiter gave a fleeting appearance.

Whiskey tasting session got under way, staggering back to tent without the North Star for guidance can be interesting.

Anyway, better finish off and warm my fingers up.

Cheers

Adrian

Important cloud activity:

* 3 Monts 8.5% = 5/5 .. exceptional beer :)

* Hogs Back T.E.A Bitter 4.2% = 3/5 decent drinkable bitter.

* Hogs Back Gardener's Tipple = 2/5 hmm drinkable but has a sharpish taste

* Hogs Back Snout 3.8% = 4/5 smooth stout, kind of like a smoother, weaker original guinness.

My brother and I will leave tomorrow morning, once the Transporter is fully loaded (checklist printed and armed!), via the supermarket to squeeze some beers in.

See you all tomorrow afternoon!

A quick M51. First time i've tried it. More processing power back home, should be able to get a bit more out of the data.

I'm going to be a bit late getting there, due to other things. I'm planning to arrive around 6-7am... Will lucksall staff be around to check me in/give me the welcome pack do you think?

I arrived late on Tuesday and the shop was closed. There is a mobile phone number on the door. When I called the number a very friendly lady gave me the option of her coming down to welcome me or just taking care of myself and checking in the next morning. I chose the latter option. If you get here and the lights are out in the shop I'd suggest you just head for your pitch and then check in when they open for breakfast.

Nice shots - currently imaging M44 an open globula cluster near jupiter. Not the intended target but I can find m51 in binos but not star hopping with the scope...

I didn't have a bad session on M51 fingers crossed the camera issues are sorted out too but when I'll get to process it remains to be seen as I'm off to bed now due to me getting up early in morning, I can't think why I'm getting up at silly o clock is there an event or something? :evil:

Hope the eclipse went well for you folks, it looked like good weather for you. I was lucky in that there was just enough cloud in my part of the north east meaning the eclipse could be seen filtered through the clouds all the way through maximum.

A great morning followed by a bacon butty in a local cafe.

Hope you all had a good morning.

Cheers
