Darker Evenings are coming

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

It's been a busy year and what seems like a long summer!  The nights are starting to draw in now so I will be unpacking my gear very  shortly.  If there are any plans for a meet up soon I would very much like to come along!

Cheers,

Dan

Hi Dan, good to hear from you again. We've had a couple of sessions up at the car park on the ridge at the top of the hill overlooking the Campsite you'd spoken to previously, but it's been a very busy year. 

Hopefully we can get a few sessions in this season.

Speaking of which, I know it's a little short notice, but Sunday's looking good, weatherwise, and I'm planning to head up to the carpark above Creech for the evening. Anyone else up for that?

I'm afraid that I've already booked for the Wessex Astro Family event at Durlston on Sunday evening. 

You're welcome to come along if you like, but I think it'll be quite busy.

Enjoy your session at Creech Kev. 

I'm looking forward to getting the ED120 

Maybe @Concretedan might join you.

Hi All,

Took this last night and I'm quite happy with it!  I'm new to astrophotography and it's a steep learning curve but I'm enjoying the challenge!

I am noticing it rather quickly now, even a couple of days you can see a bit of a difference.

After much deliberation, I've decided to pass on Creech tonight. Thinking it might be busy up there, what with it being a bank holiday weekend, and if I set up in the garden at home I can enjoy a 🍺 😀

Think that was a good shout mate.  Looked like some sea mist rolled in last night from where I am in Hamworthy and Creech, being quite high, would have been covered I reckon.  Not sure how long it stayed though.

We had a frustrating session at Durlston. The sea mist kept rolling in between 21:00 and 23:00 but after that it was looking good. I had to bail as my other half wanted to get back but I suspect that the die hards were rewarded with nice clear skies.

Cheers, that's good to know. In the end, the sky was spectacular over Piddletrenthide. Cracking session :)

Nice.  Glad you had a good one.  The seeing last night was fantastic.  As soon as I went outside in the garden the sky just lit up, even with my light polluted skies, but alas, the scope stayed tucked in as I had to be up very early for work!  Not clear until Sunday now I think.  Oh well never mind!
