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?

      Hello, 
      Unfortunately, I will be moving from my Bortle class 3/4 skies overlooking the Cotswolds, to somewhere with class 6 skies 😫
      Does anybody with any local knowledge around the Stotfold area have any observation site suggestions? Away from any local light pollution at least. It would seem driving east maybe productive according to https://www.lightpollutionmap.info
      Thanks
      Mike

      Hello!
      I am looking for variable star databse using which I can practice star light curves in spreadsheet programs.
      I am doing this as my statistics project where I can do visualization, little bit of error reduction etc.
      I did see a few ones like AAVSO, but they either need some specific job title or specific star etc.
      I need something to have in general, like here is the data-choose what star option you want etc.
      Thanks!

      Hello!
      I have been really inactive here, so apologies.
      Here are a few images of the Solar Eclipse, happened on 21 June 2020. It was annular, but partial from Mumbai region (around 60% covered). Maximum phase of the eclipse was at around 11:30 a.m. IST.
      This is actually onset of our 4-5 months of monsoon season, so getting decent skies was a tough part. Luckily got decent cleared patches here and there with occasional rains.
      I had to use whatever I had to make a comfortable view of the eclipse, thanks to the lockdown.
      I simply took a box, made a whole of the size of the eyepiece on one end, cut the opposite side and attached a paper. I had to do little bit here and there attachments for perfect angle. But was really happy with the results. 
      One of the best experience was when I was seeing the Sun while it was drizzling at the same time.
      Thanks!

      Hi all I’m just looking for advice on upgrading telescop. At the minute I’ve got a Meade ETX 125 and had some good views with it so far. Mainly Moon Planets and brighter clusters. However I wanted to see more Galaxies and nebulas which is a much to ask for a F15 scope. 
      im looking at second hand Celestron/Meade 9.25” f10 s With maybe a focal reducer and Sky-Watcher 10”-12” F4.9 dobsonians which is the better choice?

      Hey there.

      I am curious, as to what media or software you guys are using, in terms of knowing when certain alignments, conjunctions or events happen?

      I actually had a clear sky, a couple of days ago, when the conjunction of Venus and the Pleiades happened, but I didn't know until the day after. I even thought: "what a nice clear sky, but naaah, the moon is way too bright tonight" (I mostly shoot galaxies these days).
      So I am actually a bit bummed at missing that.

      So, what good sources are you guys using? I am mostly using stellarium, reading a bit on the forum here, and looking into SkySafari Pro (will that give any clues?). Or is it simply by chance figuring it out 😅

      Thanks in advance.
