Peak Star Party Spring 2020

Recommended Posts

Thank you to everyone that turned up Duncan, Peter, Steve who I didn`t get to meet next time maybe and Nick, lets hope when this Virus has gone we can have another one and build on this maybe get 10 next time.

Really is a cracking site to observe better than home in light polluted skies went to my back door last night I could just make out Leo, the head had 3 stars from Shallow grange it was unmistakable, Orion nebula by eye so its worth the effort to get here.

Thank you for coming to the first party I have started with help from Nick here`s to the future.

Sounds like a fun star party was had by most. I totally forgot this was on. 

I remember Storm Gonzales on the last big PSP at shallow grange. Blowing a proper gale and still trying to observe. It was a giggle to say the least. 

Cotterless is a good guide to the skies and glad the skies allowed him to pass on a few objects of note. NGC2392 and M51 at this time of year are perfectly placed. 

Good stuff guys bet you're already planning next years.

Thanks for the heads up Paul and fingers crossed this pandemic passes quickly with the least problems for everyone. 

I hope you get it sorted and all the arrangements in place. I doubt I will be there as I'm already booked for the dark skies of Galloway. I book years in advance.
