Coffee and chocolate cake 😋. Should see me home.

Last night  was pretty much the same as the other clear nights 

Thanks to all for another enjoyable star camp. Amazing how quickly a week passes.

Already looking forward to the Autumn bash. 

Who do you think You Are - having tea and cake 🙄.

pity the skies didn’t deliver last night

As Damian has said, was  a nice Star Camp.

Thanks to our hosts Lesley and Ralph for ensuring our stay and as usual all the effort they put into seeing that we are not disturbed by the general public. They also go to great lengths to ensure all lights are either shaded or blanked out.

All together 5 nights of views for either visual or camera work.

It was very nice to see old and new faces.

I talked with Lesley and we now have 21 booked  pitches for the Autumn Star Camp. So only 4 left.

Anyway as I said before I have allowed as much pre-warning about dates as I can and the dates are SET in STONE.

I look forwards to seeing you all in 6/7 months again.

Stay Safe,

Thanks everyone for a fun weekend, even the cloudy nights in the games room.

Not too hot on the processing yet, but my attempts follow ...

I'm happy with them and clearly there's some good data there, just need some more practice getting the best out of them.

Thanks to Lesley for her hospitality and maintenance of the field and facilities.

And Thanks to Peter and Derek for some pointers with my processing.

Looking forward to seeing you all again in the autumn.

It was nice to meet up with both you and Stu. Really nice shots and glad you enjoyed the time at the camp. See you both hopefully at the autumn Star Camp.

Maybe mañana, I did warn you all that I'm not that interested in processing. 🤣

I the expression "when pigs fly" says it all !

Just cause I  can, (possibly) doesn't mean I will. 🙂
