Nice work Eric. You did well to pick up M108. I tried some galaxies in Ursa major NGC3718 & 3729 but couldn't pick them out of the LP. I set up at home last night but spent most of the early

Need more data still but it’s coming along nicely :-) 

So last night was incredibly cold with everything completely icing over, but managed to get my first shot of rosette nebula :-) 7B868031-B1EC-4D07-AF65-DFD716DEECA4.tiff

Sorry to hear about the cancellation Matt. 

I managed about 5 hours out altogether last night but I've never seen so much dew!!! 

Lots of moisture in the air and the high cloud just made things difficult.

At least you got out Damian I have now got a new street light right in where I set up not worth going out until council do something with it.

I have 3 led streetlights in my field of view east south and west might see the council if they will install some switches so I can turn them off and back on again when I have finished ?

I`m waiting to see what they do hopefully put a shroud on it.

Thete were no street lights for miles whete I set up Paul but the light scatter feom the big light domes of middlesborough and the vale of york made the sky a little like the ones at the cotterless PSP.

I could see the milkyway down to abput 20° above the horizon which was good given the conditions.

I'm convinced that we can reduce the number of street lights by a half without any adverse affects, saving the money, the planet and keeping us night birds happy.

This is what my sky looks like

Stacked an cleaned up a bit, i can just about convince myself there is some milky way in there:

Yea your probably right. The street lights near me though all point down.  So the one in the next street doesn't shine into my garden.  They should all be like this gain.  That one near you looks unjustified

That is bad

That is bad, my next door but one neighbor have just got a dog and they let it out  a few times at the moment with it being a puppy i supose, which triggers the floodlight. nuisance at moment haha, but otherwise, I am in a good spot as just a low glow from Ossett Center to the West and slight glow from Wakefield to the North East, so overall not bad at all/

Where i am at Royston, despite being about 7 miles from wakefield town centre it seems most of my light pollution is from Wakefield, my northern sky is much worse than my southern sky usually and for that reason i dont normally observe much in the northern sky. Wakefield needs to improve there street lights!

Eh? it’s only 8.15pm... how can it have cleared Ossett at 11pm? Have you been discovering a Time Machine and not telling us fella?

Perhaps due to this post appearing repeatedly I got the date wrong, or maybe I do have a time machine, dont bet against it ha ha

My Northern view is really good, no pollution to cause problems

      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
