Hi all
Anyone up for a little observing this night?  Say 8.00?  
I may be a little late myself, not sure at the moment.

Hi Paul, 

I'd be up for it. 

Let's hope the clouds stay away. 

Clear skies, 

Darren.

Hi Paul.

Count me in.  I've been using my SCT as an umbrella stand, my refractor as a toilet roll holder and my tripod (turned upside down) as a washing line.  Time to dust them off and do some observing.  I'll be watching met.ie anxiously.

Cheers,
Mike

I plan to go, it will be closer to 8.30 or thereabouts.  I am travelling light, just bringing binoculars as I don't want to load up the car with lots of gear and only have small breaks in the cloud.

Forecast very poor tonight Darren. Looks like Clouds 2, Astronomers 0.

Hi Mike, 

Many thanks for the update. We really are having a bad run of things at the moment, and it seems like it's not clearing for a while. 

Chat soon, and very many thanks for lending me your filter last night.

I very much enjoyed my time at the Sugarloaf on Friday night. Even though it was bad we did not do any observing, it was still great to catch up with everybody.

Kind regards,

Aubrey.

Completely agree with you Aubrey....With the scopes fully assembled it felt like we were all dressed up with nowhere to go. But, it was great 'shooting the breeze' with you, Paul, and Mike last night.
Many thanks for the Berlioz recommendation. I'm sitting here with it playing in the background... Incredible!!!

Kindest regards, 

Darren.
