Well tonight's the night, just about to check through my gear and start packing the car. If the wind behaves it's self it should be a good night.

Good luck with that Andy. :thumbsup:

 

Skies look good but after 9pm with a very slim chance of a shower, and it is going to be really cold, possibly even frosty.

Well that was a busy one. Nearly 150 people and I think most were queued up for my scope. Managed to show lots of people the double cluster the pleiades and andromeda along with a couple of scopes on the moon. Nice to see plenty of interest.

Big thanks to everyone who helped out.

Well done to everyone involved in last night's event.  The place was teaming with activity, and considering the temperature was close to zero, there was a far bigger crowd than I had expected.  Also, nice to see the building work on the "Hayloft" to coming on in leaps and bounds.  Hopefuly, IDAS will be back in there for its main meetings in the Spring 2016.  

 

Cheers

I am pleased you had a good night Mark, a fantastic effort. It's always great to share that spark that might encourage others to look up.
