I'll not be joining you guys so I hope it does pick up as around 90% cloud at present

Just put my 1.25" Lumicon visual filters in the classifieds as the 2" one's have landed to replace them :wink:

Looks like there is a good chance of some clear skies - checked a couple of forecasts.

I need to clear it with the wife, but I'll be up for a trip out there (as long as i can find a way around the Woodhead Pass)

Not sure if I'll get out this evening but I'll keep an eye in the thread and escape if I can if it looks to be a clear evening :)

Ah yes, I remember seeing your image last week. Nice pinpoint stars Neil. It looks like the season is underway again!

Count me in for tonight if it is clear (as it is currently very cloudy over Wakefield). I have got a pass as Terry is off to his brothers and Sophie is going to bed early as she's working all weekend and up at 6am. I've just got to promise to be home before she needs the car in the morning LOL.

So, keep us posted on the forecast and I'll hopefully see some of you there tonight.

Small car park again? 

P.s. I've only just recovered from the midge bites after last time........

It's looking clear from about 8:00pm. Small car park it is as usual. 

The midges will be bad I'm sure

Yes, that's the one. Have you got an up to date weather forecast? I've only looked at Metcheck but it's showing 28% cloud at 10pm going up to 31% by midnight.

Hmmm... clear from 8.50 to 10.50... rest of the time there’s a thin veil of cloud that meteoearth.com doesn’t show up brilliantly once it flips to darkness (cog in top right corner lets you turn dark/light views off and fix it to light view only, then you can see it).

Plus I still haven’t replaced my inverter, so I shall be on the sofa in front of the TV I’m afraid!
