Hi Ian,

No, the cod fillet was perfect, but I had to cook it in open as Mike thought it might stink the caravan out!

Nice to see the whiskey you are bringing, ( it goes like a race horse I believe! ) could be the last when Brexit goes ahead and the imports of Ireland's best are stopped at the border......

Have a safe trip and looking forward on meeting up again 

Cheers

Adrian

PS it appears David's whiskey is sitting on his worktops.....

Hi Folks,

Wednesday Night 23:15 pm.... report

The clouds over the campsite have parted for a while, we can see the plough, Capella, Cassiopeia, Pegasus, Vega, Hercules, Draco and parts of the Milky Way.

This is a totally unexpected delight.... But the clouds are moving from the west, so I don't think the clear patch will be around for long.

The forecast is for clouds tonight. I must have a whiskey and go out again to see if things have changed.

Cheers

Adrian

Hi Folks

Thursday Morning Report....

Well I was up at 05:45am this morning.....it was cloudy but high cloud, the crescent Moon was high in the southeast. Nothing else was visible.

Decided on going back to bed until 08:00am, what else can one do?

The cattle have moved from the field that goes down to bay, the big White Bull will not be back in the Spring....the cows are going up to Ian's farm near Newton Stewart for the winter.

I took some photos of the event which I will attempt to load up later.

It is a grey day here and a tad windy as well.

To those travelling take care, we would hate your whiskey bottles to get smashed.

Cheers

Adrian

Hi folks,

The pictures taken at 08:40 am this morning.

The White Bull is very old and struggled to keep up with the cows.

There is a story about bulls, but it cannot be repeated here.......

All the best

      Hey,
      I live in the NE of Scotland and have recently been bit by the Astrophotography bug!  I bought a Star tracker a few months back, but only started using it 3 weeks ago (due to crap weather).  The images posted are what I've managed to get with my Fujit XT2 and my various lenses.  Only just started stacking in DeepSkyStacker and trying to stretch / edit in Photoshop.  I've recently gotten the 45 day trial on Pixinsight so will be looking to try out editing in that.
       
      Looking forward to learning a bunch from everyone!

      Hi,
       
          Looking for a 12" DOB (or larger) which can be transported to Prestwick, Ayrshire. Any brand, as long as the telescope is optically sound and in good working order. I'm a reliable buyer who has bought and sold on this site before.
       
      Thanks,
