Still here at SGL.  Quick process in the field of 4 hours of Ha data on aprt of the soul.  Hoping for more clear sky and the gale force winds forecast actually dont get here     

So, despite the on/off conditions from Saturday night - panel 2 worked out fairly ok. It will need another couple of hours to get the noise down to an acceptable level - but when added to the first pa

Great to meet you all and spent time at SGL 2017! One of my subs from last night (jpg unprocessed) looking forward to playing with the raw data. See you all again next year!

Pile of kit building up downstairs. Bringing HEQ5, ED80 and elderly modded DSLR, plus Lunt solar for those balmy, sunny days. Picking up and packing hired motorcaravan on Thursday afternoon, planning to get to Lucksall about lunchtime Friday  (unlike last year, when a later pickup meant I arrived in the dark when you were all curried up and Michael had started the quiz). Visited Majestic Wine this morning to top up my supply of "The Astronomer" Shiraz.

Damn!!, All this Banter is depressing me, Coz. I am not going to be there for this one.
Only contribution  I can offer, Is a genuine hope that you get very good night skies,
and you all have a cracking good time.   
You all get there and back safely now, enjoy the Hog Roast, the Breakfasts, The quiz. and 
to  whom it concerns, the Booze.
Have a Ball Guys and Gals.  I'll be there in Spirit.

I'm not sure now that I'll be able to make it :(.

Been getting a bit of a thumping head and sore eyes on and off, now throat's starting to get a bit sore and nose running a bit. Too early to tell if it's going to develop into a "streamer" and I'll prepare to come anyway, just don't count on it. Colds give me nose-bleeds and I don't want one on the road or at camp.

I'm not formally cancelling as I don't want to burn my bridges 'till I cone to them (To mix metaphors), I'll just bear the cost anyway.

Does anyone know what traffic around Gloucester is like on a Friday lunchtime? Tossing up if it's best to go over the bridge or keep on the M5 to 11A to pick up the A40.

Same distance give or take and similar journey time, unless the traffic is heavy one way or the other, hence the question.

I was wondering the same thing, to cross the Severn crossing or not? Hmm.

I'm leaning towards not, being a skinflint I can't see a downside unless somebody tells me I'll be sat in traffic that way :)

Excellent, glad the Present Mrs Foster won't feel lonely :)

 

The ever-tolerant Mr Helen (Mike!) is also popping along on Saturday and Sunday (I'm sure it is not just the hog roast that is attracting him!!)
