Hi all, A pleasant evening in terms of company but very little to write on here astronomy wise. Managed a few brief views of the stars through tiny gaps but not much else. Hopefully we will have bette

Matt , are you going via Penistone, if so, bear onto B6106, stay on here up and straight through a wide crossroads  and when you start going downhill look for some chevrons on your left (sign saying trans pennine trail) this is Brookhill lane, its a sharpe left, turn left up there, (if using sat nav it may tell you to turn left or right just after going through Carlecotes) ignore this ( tip that Vicky gave me), drive straight on and look for right turn to Holmfirth, turn right there and look for reservoir entrance on your left after a couple of hundred yards or there about.

Eric

ps: I have only been twice myself and then in daylight, never in the dark, so we may bump into each other asking for directions when we get lost lol !!!, the only tricky bit is turning left up brookhill lane the chevrons are a good pointer, just keep going till you see Holmfirth sign on right.

Spot on with those Eric. Once thing to mention is there is no mobile phone signal there. I think the signal goes just after carlecotes, as I found out the first time I went there. Least it dies with ee. So after that there's nothing.

What does everyone think about the weather. It looks quite unpredictable and windy. Although if we get some clear patches it may be worth it.

      Hi everyone! I hope you are all doing well! I just wanted to ask if anyone had any ideas for projects to do, as the sky is clearing up and i wanted to make the most of it. Anything, maybe finding or tracking a certain celestial object or mapping the moon! I'll leave it up to you!😊

      Hello everyone! I hope you are all doing well! I recently joined this forum for the express purpose of answering this question: Why does Mars look like a simple star through my telescope? I have a Starsense Explorer LT 80AZ refractor with a 10mm, 25mm and 2x Barlow lens, and my telescope has a max magnification of 189x! So why is it, on a pretty clear winters night, that the mighty Mars, the Red Planet , looks like a humble star. I love stars (who the hell doesn't) but i rather hoped to see a planet. What am i doing wrong? AM i doing something wrong or is my telescope inadequate (i doubt it though). I use the 10mm plus the Barlow, and still nothing. Is this just how Mars looks through a telescope like mine? Or maybe i'm not looking at Mars at all. Although, according to my research, the Red Planet currently resides in the constellation of Aries. Correct? Please. please answer my question as it is driving me up the wall. Plus, if anyone has the time, could someone recommend a good astronomy app, other than the starsense one, that you can just point at the sky? Thank you so much for reading this. Have a lovely day.

      Hi, I got a skywatcher classic 200p just before xmas and I havnt done much planet viewing due to not having more than a 10mm eyepiece for magnification. I recently got a 2x barlow lens and tried viewing last night with a barlow and 10mm lens and it came out very blurry and I couldn't see any detail and it still seemed quite small. I was viewing on a close night when there was a break in the clouds so may have not been the best conditions. Any tips for how much magnification I need and how to see it better. Thanks.

      Hello, 
      I've been into astronomy since I was young and more recently astrophotography. I've just (finally) got my new telescope, a Celestron AVX 9.25" Edge HD with various accessories including a reducer lens. I'm still trying to get the auto guider up and running as that's being a pain and need to get a dew heater for the telescope (currently lookjng for a decent one). I'm also looking into what filters to get as well as that's still fairly new to me, at least for the astrophotography side. 
      I'm also very much into microscopy and looking at microphotography, I'm currently saving up to get a new microscope. 
      I've also got a facebook group where I share astronomy and science news, where members can share astronomy and science news or their own astro or science images, discuss things, etc. https://www.facebook.com/groups/2494142714158646/?ref=share
      Anyway, hello to all from Cambridge, UK :-)

      Hi everyone,
      I really want to get out and do some observing- it's been a long summer! 
      Does anyone know of anywhere near Glasgow that you can get to by public transport that's ok for observing.
      I'm not looking for super dark skies- I just want to do something.
      I don't drive so mugdock, campsies etc are out of the question. Kelvingrove has been ruined by that glasglow event every winter. 
       
      Thanks for any help!
