Amazing skies last night
The Gods decided to be kind..
Some excellent pics were take
of the Milky-way stretching across
South-western sky.

Keep posted for images by
Dave Connolly, John Flannery
Paul Byrness.. Some amazing images
Taken..

Also a big thank you to all that attended, it's always good to see a full car park filled with car and a garden filled with Scopes.

Just 1 last THANK YOU to Kevin Smith for his very tasty BBQ last night and again this morning, we'll done Kevin and I hope you raise a lot for Barnardos..

Looking forward to the talks today and some more observing tonight, should the God's be kind enough to grace us again with clear skies.

Cheers Roy

Brilliant, well done guys, hope you get more of the same tonight! A bunch of us in the IAA are at an outreach event in the Sperrin Mountains tonight and the forecast is looking very good!

Just on the way home now. What a great weekend, two hours sleep a night, skies that defy description, fantastic company, bbq food, a quiz, pints in the pub.
A huge thank you to Roy for organising the event, to Kevin for the barbie and Frida and her staff at the lodge.
Book early for next year folks, this is going to be huge.
