I believe a few SGL'rs have used Coombe Abbey country park. Heading south of the city might be worthwhile. This wide field shot of the Milky Way in Cygnus was taken from a disused railway cutting near the village of Hunningham. Probably only about 5 miles south of Coventry. The shot taken in the early 1990's- I don't know what the light pollution is like nowadays?

Hi Dan,

I'm in Coventry as well, and I suffer greatly from the lights at the roundabout of Humber Road, Binley Road and Phoenix way as well as more localised lights.

Try this link and see if another meet at Coombe Abbey is attempted.

I'm afraid I couldn't make it last time.

Martyn.
