Weather wise tuesday and wednesday nights look promising!

They do according to "Clear Outside" :smiley:

Unfortunately I won't be there until Thursday through Sunday when the above site is much less optomistic :embarrassed:

Early arrivals should make the most of it and then tell us laggards what we missed :smiley:

I am a little concerned about the weather. Last years event was totally uninterrupted by astronomy but Wednesday is looking rather nice it looks like I may actually have to use my scope this year

Good stuff Derek.

I've got some replacement poles in order for my tent. Hopefully they will arrive on time, otherwise it's cable ties and gaffa tape again!!

Will make a last minute decision about scopes, if forecast is awful I may not bring anything too big

I hope they arrive in time, Stu.

Your other package certainly will - it is all packed and ready to go :wink:

The motor home already has a kitchen sink, so I'm only bringing this lot...

One thing I've learned from the 5 other star parties I've attended is to travel light :smiley:

Yep - could be more important than scope / eyepieces looking at the weather forecast !

I can keep the van nice and snug though and pop in now and then for a cuppa and a thaw :smiley:

Beer, food and warm clothing - that's all I need.

Oh, and an alarm clock - don't want to miss breakfast ;)

I don't often get to dark sites so it's still pretty tempting to bring the big scope just incase there is a clear spell

Does anyone know if there will be any members from the Croyden Astronomical Society at SGLX?

Any particular reason Derek. I'm near Croydon but not a member of the AS.

Cos Ive booked a POD for 2 nights, Im travelling very light this year. Clothes, wash stuff, tea bags, 2 packs of soup just in case, bedding and scope.

Warmth and comfort supplied by the POD hopefully and food provided by the café hopefully. Never travelled this light to a Starparty before, my T5 is usually loaded to the roof for every eventuality.

I need to get a diagonal to someone from the society. He has suggested meeting in London (where I work) but if someone is at SGLX I could hand it over there.
