The weather is looking mostly clear for tomorrow night between 19.00 - 01.00 at Wymeswold. May have a trip to the dark site if anyone is interested.

If it clears like it's supposed to, I'll be there from about 19:30 onwards.

Ive just checked the scout hut site and it would appear there is a parish council meeting in the pavillion tonight if I read it right. So I will give it a miss as it is an hours drive there for me and would be wasted if theres muggles and lights about. I may pop up to Belper though not sure

Guys, if I can't make it tonight and you do go, can you make sure you lock the gate again please?

Had a good 3 hours testing the belt drive mod, nice to see Bryan, so 2 scopes were up and running.

The patio is excellent for setting up provided you get in the clubhouse or fence shadow from the scout hut PIR flood light.

Its been awhile since I did any observing from WW and one thing I noticed was the skies are much lighter than I remember. An unfortunate fact of life these days but its still darker than most of us have at home.

Glad you got the belt mod all tested, I will see if I can do anything about the Scout Hut PIR light, can't promise anything though.

The light is actually quite useful as you come and go through the gate.  It just needs shielding so it doesn't light the non-road side.
