Come on then, let's have your best/worst/funniest moments etc.


 


For me the whole weekend was pretty darned awesome. As usual great company, made some new acquaintances and met up with lesser spotted ones too. Far too many moments to recall all of them now though!


 


I would like to thank Stephen for sorting the pitches for EMS, it's always nice to be amongst friends. I'd also like to thank Sheila, Stephen, Daz and Martyn for putting my tent up etc, it was most appreciated given my dubious health on the Thursday. Of course Huge thanks to Sheila for the catering which was of course top notch. :thumbsup:

no worries Mike you are very welcome :)  the best moment for me was to see you, daz, and stephen in tears of laughter and fits of giggling at 1 am in the morning.  We had a really good time and lots of laughs.  And i have also found i quite like bacon sarnies at 1.30 in the morning :)


 


 


top weekend :)

3rd thumbs up for the catering!


 


I have no idea where to even start......


 


The food, the company, the laughs, the skies (when clear) far too many good times to even begin to list.


 


Thanks to Graham for sorting my colli bolts and to everybody else from EMS for making it a fantastic autumn Kelling.


 


I never seem to take many photos so here are a few from the last couple of days......

Looks like a wonderful time guys.


 


Daz did you add any Messiers to your list?


 


Also must try out your new Ethos next time we meet.


 


How many clear nights did you have?

Yeah I only managed to add 5 new Messiers to my list, Thursday night was full cloud, Friday was not great either, Saturday night was clear ish for a couple of hours but I spent far too long looking at old Messiers and comparing the views through the Ethos compared to my Baader zoom, the double cluster was fantastic, fitting in the FOV nicely and I loved the fact I could get M81 and M82 in the same FOV with room to spare!
