Anyone from the South West going....I am, so we could meet up for a chat ....

I'll be wearing a red rose in my button hole and have a copy of the Daily Mail under my right arm!

I'll probably do the "Photographing the night sky" Lecture.

Would be nice to meet up with the some of the South West bunch.

The astrophtography one was very interesting but aimed at the total beginner. That Nick bloke can't half take some pics!!

I had a chat with him after the lecture, I never thought about just puting my DSLR on a standard tripod and taking pics, of all the mega bucks equipment this blokes got some of the best pics he's taken are with a slr film camera and a tripod in the back garden of his home in Essex!!

So that's what I had a go at tonight!!
