BBC forecast is for high pressure sunny days and cold nights with frost so hopefully clear.

I`m just getting bits and bobs together thinking about best food bring when I will be cooking on single gas cooker (might bring two) make it a bit easier still quite hard. Leaving my Astronomy kit until Friday morning may get a clear night tonight or tomorrow.

All packed up. Just got to put a Dob in the car.

It's no use looking at forecasts, last session I had five different forecasts varying from sleet, heavy rain and clear skies. Checking after a few hours, they all changed . Surprisingly still inaccurate! Hope to get there about 2 on Friday under 

clear skies !

Is the café any good?

Hope so, because I won't have room for cooking gear.

I'm hoping so but I only know what is on the site's website. Anyone have first hand experience?

My details for the pod say 3pm too but I'll be setting off when I'm ready to go. Don't mind hanging around if necessary

Sadly not arriving until about 5pm with work commitments. Any help setting up from you early arrivals before sunset would be really appreciated :) 

i bought a small pop up gazebo to cover the scope if weather turns. Bringing my cge pro with 11"edge and piggyback takahashi fsq. That's all that will fit in I'm afraid ! Oh and my Lunt magnesium binos :)

I am bringing a toilet tent but to be honest I might leave it in the bag and sling it over the dob and leave it in situ if things go pear shaped or when I go to bobos.
