What time do you normally go on until?

I might try and see if I can get out of bedtime duties and come along, show my face and meet some of you; but I probably won't be able to get there until 8pm.

We usually finish around 9.30pm, however it may be a bit earlier this week depending on how things go. Some of us usually head for a pint to the local afterwards, so it would be worth you popping over, and it'd be nice to meet you :)

I'll be there unless things have changed at work when I get back tomorrow.

Soupy isn't able to attend due to child care so someone else not quite as adept at opening the evening will be doing it!

I'm sure that particular person will do a great job! ;)

Just to note a slight change of time for tomorrow night.

There is a parents evening finishing at 7.00 but all things being equal it will probably run late, I'm talking from experience.

Therefore we have been requested not to start arriving until after 7.15 as the car park might be busy!

I propose starting the meeting at 7.45 to give the school time to finish the parents evening, please wait in the reception till 7.30 if you arrive early.

Don't forget Saturday is observing night, weather might not play ball though. Keep an eye and let us all know if you fancy a trip out.

      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

      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.
