This weather is doing my head in :( not been stargazing for ages.

Totally agreed, I'm actually looking forward to the winter.

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! :)

Haha, you always seem to be clearing out the shed.

The skies are getting better, for instance a couple of days ago I could see the Milky Way from my garden, I cant remember when that was visible here. Anyone up for Cosford this weekend?

What time are you planning guys? I've got to be in Evesham for 8.30 on Saturday but I'm thinking of leaving there at 10.30 and getting to Cosford for around 11:45 ish (earlier if I can escape for about 10). Is that too late?

These clouds and rian are doing my head in now - The other weekend was amazingly clear, but a little hazy I thought...I ended up satellite watching with that App on the iPhone called GoSat Watch - Satellite Tracking...saw some amazing Iridium Flares!

I say roll on the Winter when the still crystal clear nights make an appearance! It will be a showcase @ Cosford with Jupiter and the like...I am still yet to see my first Galaxy and Star Cluster...Must admit, I find it really difficult using my red dot finder...thinking, would a Telrad help?

I'll be driving back from Wiltshire late Saturday night, going to take my bins and dslr see if I can stop off somewhere nice and dark on the way back :D

Would love to have made the meteorwatch up at Barr Beacon but I don't think I'll be back early enough :(

Anyone up for a camping meet in Ratlinghope valley Shropshire, good dark site, no power hookups so batteries only, good pub down the road a bit, the site is open all year I think and I have been many times. I have access to a large tent (will seat more than a dozen with scopes)

If interested PM me here or mail me at galaxyzoo90@yahoo.com

Will also post this in West Midlands group

Whenever people reply, moonless nights, lets get together to talk, i am ready all the time just about, the holiday period is always difficult for people, also the site suggested by Paulus17 is only a few miles away but nearer to lights.

The site is a good 50 miles from me so it would have to be almost guaranteed quality night, tis a long way to go to be disappointed by our awful weather.
