Wel, how did it go last night?


How did it go!?

Unreal!

For weeks we have had the worst weather then yesterday
the skies clear!

Dave and I took a spin to Lisdoon and met up with Leon and his relation.
(Sorry Leon, I forget his name!)

I was hoping to get some shots of the Dolmen so I suggested we
take the 20min spin into the Burren to see what the parking situaton was
like.
From what I remembered there was none really just a bit of a 'lay by'
at the side of the narrow road.
But thanks to the Clare County Council there is now a huge flat
gravel carpark just off the road.
Easily the best observing site in the country.
Lads, this is the Burren - there is ZERO houses for miles let alone a town.

So we helped Dave set up the Obsessionator and got to work.
(I might let Dave give the list of targets we saw here as I couldnt be bothered! :twisted: )

Highlight for me was getting a chance to photograph the Dolmen
against fantastic skies and also the view of Saturn through the 20'' er again.
Maybe its because there is lots of rock around in the burren but the
seeing was amazing and it really was like a cassini photo!

We had a great time with Leon hearing all about the club and the
various activities.
We even got to learn how to pronounce Anthony's second name!!

:D

Well Leon,
hope you had a good time and I'm looking forward to meeting up again in Siberia!

Hey Leon,
here is that photo...
