OO 14 inch DOB :icon_biggrin:  Solar kit - Ha, Cak, white light and evolution mount.  And probably a c6/flt98 to go on the evolution for grab and go and put an atik infinity through its paces :wink:  

 

Need to work out protection for the DOB though - will it fit in the toilet tent or do I need a cover....

Must remember to charge up the powerpacks!

I just pulled the trigger on an Altair Astro Starwave 152 F5.9 from RVO that I should be able to collect before the event :grin:

Hoping the clutch lasts this year and no door width issues - so:

The 350 Dob, C9.25, bins plus the little WO +filter in case of sun.

Other essentials: Nespresso machine, beer, plonk

Probably, SW 200mm Quattro, SW 150mm Skymax, SW 200mm DOB and the requsite accessories. If I have room for it all.

We are off to Kielder first and staying in a POD so will have the car space needed but bringing a tent to Lucksall so something will have to go.

I will be bringing my Celestron C8 N on its AVX mount, along with my Cannon 18x50 image stabilised binds. Camera wise, it will be my Nikon D300.

Anyone bringing a 10Micron GM1000HPS ? I'd really like to see one in the field before spending more of the childrens inheritance.
Particularly interested in how you power it.

Certainly my 120ed for white light solar and my pstal stage two ha mod. Still working out whether it has to me my 12" or 16" dob - depends what will fit through the caravan door (or windows! !)

Will definitely be the 120ED, PST stage two mod and 12" dob as this one fits through my door!

That said, for next time I'll have made a truss system. :icon_biggrin:

Very considerate of you, now we just need all the guys with bald heads to wear bobble hats to cut down on the glare :)

I agree. Astronut always hides his beautiful baldy crown with admirable modesty. Only right and proper.

Left it to the last minute to decide, then just kept adding stuff "just in case". HEQ5 and the ED66 that usually gets used for guiding, but I thought I might do some unguided slightly wider field imaging with it; modded 1000D that I haven't had a chance to use since I got it in November, bins, reading glasses for when I'm in the van out of the rain, pirate patch for my watery eye if I do actually look through a scope (with the other eye, of course). I'll give the PST a miss though. Or maybe I might need it just in case.
