This Saturday is the last Saturday of the month. This is one of our scheduled observing nights. If you are available please post here so other members can arrange to meet up with you either up at our normal observing locations of Winscarr or Middlestown or another location to suit whichever members are free.

Yeah, looks like the weather may have spoiled Saturdays plans. Im looking forward to 9th November to get to a meeting. I haven't been to one in months due to one reason or another.

I wouldn't mind a trip out, however I was just going to stop at home to do a bit in the backyard as I'm on earlies this week and working full-time hours. It's going to be a shock to the system!

If I went, I'd go early to get back home at a reasonable time - what time were you thinking of going?

Yup, I'll pop down for a couple of hours if the forecast stops clear.

Will need to be setting back off around 10pm, but it'll give me a couple of hours.

Are we meeting at the large car park?

Weather up in Horbury is not good - 100% cloud cover with mist and fog.

Anyone at home nearer Winscar to let us know what it's looking like down there?

      Hi,
      i was wondering do any of you wear eyepatches when you observe through you scope ( Covering the unused eye) the reason I bring this up is I was thinking if it would produce less strain instead of squinting  and probably a better view! or you could put it over the observing eye and stop it from getting the night vision ruined.
      wonder how many pirate observers there are.

      Hi,
      After using Stellarium on my tablet for helping me find stuff with binoculars. I was wondering on the PC version is it possible to see the  FOV through a certain telescope? Have been using something similar https://astronomy.tools/ but was wondering if it’s possible in stellarium . I know there is a telescope tab but not sure how it works, I was wondering if there are any other programs like this that you recommend . Any help will be appreciated 
      PS Sorry if I e posted this in the wrong section.

      Hi all, not sure where else to post this, but I've managed to secure access to a handful of pretty good observing sites over the years I've been at this, and wondered if anyone in the Dorset area is interested in sharing them or perhaps arranging meet-ups/stargazing sessions. I don't want to post the locales publicly, as a couple are on farms to which I've been granted access. I kinda wish there was a Dorset community sub-forum, but I don't think the mods are too keen on expanding that section of the site.
      Anyway, let me know if you're interested.

      Hi, The link below is for the night sky next week, in the Southern Hemisphere. Because the Moon will be up, it focuses on the Moon, Jupiter, Mars and a few clusters. 
      The night sky for 22-28 January 2018

      Hello, The link below is a round up of the southern sky in January from the point of view of Wellington in New Zealand. We’ve tried to capture a bit of a cultural flavour too with some of the night sky descriptions that are relevant to Māori. So if anyone is heading down to the Southern Hemisphere in January then be sure to have a look at some of the objects - if you’re already in the Southern Hemisphere, you might find it useful too. Here it is :The January 2018 Night Sky.
