Hi Zainraza,

I am new to this group too so maybe the others can advise. However in this months sky at night mag there was the following website to help with finding dark skies http://darkoutdoors.com/

Birmingham is mentioned on there I think

The site we visit at Cosford is the best close by. A good compromise between travelling and darkness - the first time I visited I couldn't believe that there were skies that dark so close to where I live (les than 1/2 hour from light polluted Brownhills)

Well you know the weather in this country (i.e. not as often as we'd like!)

Just stay subscribed to this thread and the next time there's a clear Saturday night when the moon won't be too intrusive there's bound to be someone post on here to arrange a visit.

Anyone up for tonight? I'm a bit done in from clearing out the shed but this sky looks too good to miss.

Need to know as I'm off up the shop for a bottle of wine if not! :clouds2:

Yeah really bad weather, got a couple of hours in on the 29th but wasnt totally clear. Had a quick play with Andromeda - still a little low n the sky. Hope we get these cloudy nights out the way during the shorter evenings.

It seems to happen at some stage every year when my telescopes dont leave the cupboard for 3 months or more. Roll on Autumn I think British summer time has had it.

Hi guys. I have had problems with SGL site - cookies I think

I had thought I posted about the West Midlands Group that has started- do we want to converse on there? This post is getting a bit long

I would hope that the number of members might be able to report on the various sites that have been suggested (and no details of where we have been meeting has been given out)

I wondered what had happened when you said you'd mentioned it here but nothing showed. Think SGL still has the odd quirk or two that shows up at random times LOL
