Hi All,

Anyone fancy a trip to Sutton Bank tonight. I’m meeting Eric at Wetherby Services at 5pm. The forecast looks good.

The address of where we are going is Bungdale Head Campsite, Scawton, nr Thirsk YO7 2HH if you want to meet us there. As its a campsite its £5 per car but its very safe (and dark) and there’s toilet facilities etc.

Cheers Dec.

At present I have 50% cloud over me with some nice clearings

Forecast changed slightly from yesterday as it was showing 50% cloud on met check. BBC/Met office has it clear and Met check for helmsley:-

Hi Damian, yeah always difficult with forecast. Scope nights shows it good but you never know.

Be good to see you if you get a chance to get up.

MeteoEarth shows it clouding out completely at 12.55... patchy thin cloud coming over from 8.45pm: http://www.meteoearth.com/#/,-1.35,54.23,254.78,8,1,1,0,0,0,time=1516469880
Good luck!

Spot on Marci. Atmosphere was loaded with moisture and the views weren't up to much tbh. Dec, Adam and Eric were struggling with the imaging lark.

By 10pm the thin high cloud was giving way to thicker stuff moving in from the west. 

I struggled to view most things. We all set up on 2" of snow. It was well cold on the feet. 

Hope everyone got home safely. The roads were really treacherous.

Actually it was 6" of snow around my car Damian, and the roads were a bit hairy haha

It was a dodgy trip especially coming back, plenty of stars on show but it got a bit 'Milky' after an hour or so with moisture creeping in and clouds on the horizon , I managed a close up shot of the HH 128 secs total, Evo 9.25 atik infinity FR 6.3, wonder how close it would have looked without the FR haha

That’s a beauty Eric. Looked great on your laptop last night. You did well to get such a clear pic.

The conditions were tough, loads of stars out but air was full of moisture, guide stars were jumping about erratically. I found it difficult to keep my guiding stable.

Nevertheless was good to get out. Hopefully skies clear a bit in the next few weeks.

:laughing4: the dob must've sat on top of it as it wasn't past the bottom of the rocker.

Mind you using a scraper to get it off when I lifted it was a novelty :grin:

Thanks Mark - I've set it to record. It's been very quiet on here recently, but we've not really had good skies. It looked promising the other night, but the moon was bright and it clouded over very quickly.

To be fair Vicky it’s been quite everywhere. This weather is killing us I’m just glad I can get out with the camera through the day or I’d be going mad. 

Iv got some images to process today from a trip to Adel Dam yesterday

I hardly come on here now, plus the weather is rubbish, not used my scope for a long time now, may as well sell it

      Hi all.. 
      New to astronomy,  bought my son a cheap telescope for Xmas and have enjoyed viewing with him so just bought myself a 250mm dob. Pleased to say it arrived today so started off with a bit of moon viewing.  Must admit I've had a lovely evening! 
      Can see me investing quite a bit of time and money into this. Look forward to hearing from some of you members as time goes on.

      Hello everyone. I've been lurking here for a while, thought I'd sign up and say hello. My name's Tom, I am serious but you can call me Shirley if you like.
      I've had a telescope (skywatcher 150 dob) for about 7 years, it saw some use before I went to university to study physics, but I left it at home. (Naively thought there wouldn't be a great deal to see from the city.) It hadn't seen much use since, until January this year when I took it out under a nearly full moon to show my then lass the Orion neb and the Andromeda galaxy. Since then I must've been making up lost time because I've been out in the garden almost every clear night, and I've found my collection of astro bits and bobs has been growing at an alarming rate.
      So I think it's about time I dropped by to say Hi
