Lough Dan Friday Night was created by lunartic_old

Hi all

The weather looks like it could be promising for Friday night, therefore, I am proposing we get together and check out the Lough Dan site.
I can meet up with anyone who is going, at Roundwood village, outside the Roundwood Inn, at 7.45 and show you the way to the centre, it's about a 10 minute drive.
It all depends on the weather, of course, the final decision will be made at 6.00 tomorrow evening and I will announce on this site if there is a cancellation.
Hope to see you there.

Paul

Count me in, Paul. Thank you.
Can we take it that there are toilet facilities at the Scout's Centre?

Let us hope for a low wind night.

Clear skies,

Aubrey.

There are toilets on site, Aubrey. The site should have good protection from the wind.

Thank you, Paul, for your reply.
I reckon we might be on to a real winner here.
It does look like we will have reasonably clear skies for Friday night. Very little wind too.
We will have no Moon but lots of Deep Sky objects to look for.
I'm on for Andromeda.
It will be nice to have other observers to come along.
So do join Paul at Scout's Centre.

Clear skies.

I shall still go down to Lough Dan in the car tonight, Paul.
(I can meet you in Roundwood at the set time).
But the weather people are giving no hope for clear skies on the various websites.
So I won't be bringing the scope.
It will still be good to check out the site for future occasions.
What do you think, Paul?

I'll see you down there, Aubrey. Pity about the weather.

I might bring binoculars and a tripod, Paul.
But it has been a full 2 weeks since we had a clear night!
Still, we can always blame the government for the weather!
