I won't be able to make it either. I'll keep my eyes on the weather and put a shout out on FB if you're all going. Are you looking at Winscarr or Overton?

Weather report seems to have changed. Now looking at heavy rain with 50 mph winds... Might not be a good idea!

Weather is not looking good for tomorrow night, although the British weather is known to be somewhat changeable!

Yes hope you all have a good chocolate filled evening.

Think their may be more even distribution of chocolate this year as one of last year's very greedy winners is on nights so won't be attending!

Weather permitting I will be attending tomorrow night. 8.45 sounds like a decent time for me too. Fingers crossed the weather is something like!

It's upto everyone but I reckon the car park higher up may be a bit windy. Will it be more sheltered down by the reservoir car park?

It's the one with the large trees to the east which does slighty hinder the east view. However it may pay off due to the fairly high winds expected. The other car park through dunford bridge is higher up and exposed to the wind.

there was a map kicking around somewhere with both car parks marked on. can we make that a sticky post on the the forum somewhere? Might just help people when the carparks get discussed.

This would be useful as I've never been there before.

      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
    • By Sam
      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.
