    Another Maunder Minimum perhaps 😱

    It does still exist.

    Borrowed this from a paper on the subject Cycle 24 Main article: Solar cycle 24 The current solar cycle began on 4 January 2008,[18] with minimal activity until early 2010.[19][20] It is on track to have the lowest recorded sunspot activity since accurate records began in 1750. The cycle featured a "double-peaked" solar maximum. The first peak reached 99 in 2011 and the second in early 2014 at 101.[21] It appears likely that Cycle 24 will end sometime between mid-2019 and late 2020.[22] Cycle 25 Main article: Solar cycle 25 There are many, often mutually contradictory predictions,[17] based on different methods, for the forthcoming solar cycle 25, ranging from very weak to moderate magnitude. At present, it is expected that Solar Cycle 25 will be very similar to Solar Cycle 24. They anticipate that the Solar Cycle minimum before Cycle 25 will be long and deep, just as the minimum that preceded Cycle 24. They expect solar maximum to occur between 2023 and 2026 with a sunspot range of 95 to 130, given in terms of the revised sunspot number.

    Yes I think your right there mate also that’s Stephens campervan down across from me at the bottom
  19. They do hinder some views a bit, but generally, no. By the time stuff has risen out of the murk it's high enough to be above the tree line. What you would do is put your scopes down the middle and tents to the outer edge of the pitch to maximise the sky. Anyone under the tree's is generally welcome to do the same. Rather poetically, the Milky Way heads down directly towards the toilet block!

    Gawd, imagine a Ryan Air flight to the moon, bad enough suffering a short haul to Inverness from CD

    It does still exist.

    Its almost completely devoid of any features at all. Am i correct that we are in the period known as Solar minimum ? How long is the 'cycle' and when will things 'liven up a bit ? We do have Mercury paying a visit in November to look forward too.......

    Nice. I like the first one : although i try an avoid Ryanair whenever possible.

    There seems to be a rather a lot of trees Martyn ? Are they an issue ? One would have thought that an astro camp would have been allocated a site in a clear area, rather than in the middle of a forest ?? πŸ˜•
  24. Just been on Google maps and took a screen shot of my pitch and I am almost sure that there is my old trailer tent and Sheila's mobile hotel in the shot. lower down the site is Allan's camper too I think. https://www.dropbox.com/s/rn4lidktnck4mrf/screenshot 2019-08-18 11.55.16.png?dl=0

    3 from this morning......and if they did, they would still charge you extra for hand luggage! πŸ™‚
  26. Been downloading a few more tracks for future videos.
  27. love the music, turned up the volume
  28. I am on call this weekend, so can't go too far. So I got the Dob out and gave it a once over to make sure it's ready for it's annual holiday. And it is! I just need to give the batteries a test and then sort out the bits and bobs that go with it. I'll dig out the camping gear a bit nearer the day and get that ready to go. I'll not be taking as much this year, as last year I found that stuff I thought I needed didn't actually get used.
