As there was no autumn GSP me, Damian and one other had to get an Astro fix so we had a couple of days camping in the Yorkshire Dales.

The skies were not quite as dark as Drumroamin but still good and allowed us to see plenty of Leonids, galaxies, nebulas and Uranus.

The Friday night was not as kind to us weather wise so we thought it was only right to raise a glass to the Galloway Star Party that might have been.

Please note that no pies where harmed during the making of this picture.

How's about that then?

 

 

 

Well done guys, that's the Dunkirk spirit, good to see it's still alive. :)

Hi Ian,

Great to see you looking well, a glass helps.....

I will be up in Chapel le Dale on the second weekend in December. The skies there are reasonably dark, but not as good as Galloway.

Hoping to get to Drumroanin in March 2018.

All the Best.

Adrian

An enjoyable two days for me and a great meet up.  

Thursday night had nice clear skies and plenty of good views. As Ian said friday night was not kind so we raised a glass or three to the sadly missed event.

Cheers all

Errm...not yet Mike.

Skies are gorgeous?.

Ive managed a few test shots of M45 and M31 but just trying to familiarise myself with my gear again as it's been nearly 14 months since my last outing but everything has gone smoothly.

Not tried guiding yet but might give it a go later...popped in the static for a warm up and a wee whiskey?.

Hi Mike...a few misty pathetic wisps of cloud came in overhead about 11ish so went in to watch MOTD and watch City bang a few more goals in?.

Clear now but moon's drowned all the glory out a bit.

Spesk to you tommorow.

Kenny.

      Hello All, here`s a date for your diaries,i`m pleased to announce the dates for our Autumn star camp to be held at the award winning http://www.drumroamin.co.uk/
      campsite run by Lesley and Ralph Shell. The dates are Wednesday 3rd October until Monday 8th October 2018.
      All bookings are to be made direct with the campsite, the fees can be checked with Lesley
      With any luck the earlier date this year may work to our advantage-----------time will tell.
      I will post later in the week just wanted to get the dates out there as i have had quite a few enquiries.
      Look forward to seeing new faces and seasoned regulars,
      Regards
      Mike

      Hi we hold meet ups in and around the North end of the  Galloway Dark Sky Park.  Dalmellington, Loch Doon and other place about Ayrshire.  I will post any public meets if anyone wishes  to come along.  Also if anyone is in this neck of the woods and needs some local info we would be glad to help.

      Aurora over Perthshire
      Canon 70d, Samyang 14mm f.8 lens
    • By Nadine2704
      I'm ecstatic that I finally got a chance to see the aurora - I usually miss them whenever they make an appearance!  It gave me a chance to try out my new lens (Samyang 14mm f2.8) with my Canon 70d, and I can tell it's going to be a firm favourite!  Having never imaged the aurora before (and generally being pretty useless with processing software) I wasn't entirely sure how best to process them, but I think they turned out ok in the end!

      On the evening of the 17th March in the north of Scotland the dancing lights of the aurora filled the sky and put on a mesmerising show (despite the misty conditions). Attached are a few of many wide angle shots of the aurora I obtained that evening. If you look closely at the images you can see the Plough - which will give a sense of scale to these wide angle shots.
       
      The images were taken near Strathy on the north coast of Scotland using an astro modded Canon 600D and 10-22mm Sigma wide angle lens (at 10mmFL).


      It's been a busy month for me, so it has taken a while to get a few pics processed. As a result these are not providing breaking news - I hope you enjoy seeing them nonetheless.
