Galloway September Pre Season Shakedown Starcamp 2015

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

I'm not sure whether I can make the Shakedown due to work commitments. If I do, It'll be the weekend for me. But I've got a bag of time off booked (not sure what the collective noun is for days off work!) for the Autumn bash. Can't wait!

I'll do my best to get there.

Have I looked through my Tak yet? No. I really should give that a try, but the time just flies by when faffing about with imaging!

See you soon!

Some nice pictures Kenny.  What lens did you use for the milky way shot?

The North American Nebula looks great for a 6 min exposure.  nice round stars throughout.
