Just wondered if anybody would be meeting at any of the dark sites this coming Saturday? The weathers looking ok at present. I'm keen to try my new scope at a dark site and meet a few faces, and ask a few questions😄.

Meetings get arranged based on forecasts - generally nearer the time so we don't jinx it by talking about it ;)


 


Forecasts can change very quickly - last night the forecast for Thursday night was OK, now it is cloudy, where I am anyway

I'm holding out for a new back before i start lugging kit around the countryside, so i'll probably play with myself in the back garden.

If that C11 is too heavy for you James then I could always use it on your behalf...

Also Jamie, keep an eye out who is going.  I notice you were asking about eyepieces etc.  Unless the visual lot are going to

turn up, my set up would be of no use to you at all.  There are no eyepieces as i am an imager :lol:  If you look at folks

signature it shoulf tell you who is who.  If it mentions cameras DSLR or CCD then we dont have eyepieces mostly :D

I'll keep an eye out on the weather and on hear, I'm not fussed about trying eyepieces just yet, I'm sure when I get the scope somewhere darker than my light polluted back yard it will make a big difference.

A HUGE difference - I was always wondering what the deal was with M45, until I saw it at Kelling Heath - WOW!

It seems that Stargazing & bad backs is a rather common situation.


Mind you us back sufferers generally don't want to quit lifting things as most hobbies we want to do invlove lifting!


Try doing a First Aid course spending half of your time on the floor being the casualty & the other half being the First Aider leaning over the casualty.  I did the First Aid course on Wednesday & my back hasn't recovered yet. 


So it's not just Stargazing that does it, at least for this week anyway.


 


Clear skies to all.


Cheers,


Harry.
