Looking forward to seeing everyone. For the first time I'll be able to stay for the whole 4 days!
Bring on clear skies!

Looking forward to my second camp.
Met a few people last year but I've got 3 nights this time to meet all...
Just bought a new laptop, guide cam, software but haven't even had time to test it yet so Friday night will give it a go.
Never have done guiding yet so be prepared to let me pick your brains a bit.
Cheers
Andy

I'll have to look it up. I'm trying to list a few things to look at during camp.
Will have to set the date ahead and run some time lapse in Stellarium.
Hi Drew, I found the "What's Up Tonight" box curtesy of Stellarium version 19.2 user manual, it is in the Astronomical Calculations Window F10 5th tab along, in there you can see what's visible on the night. You probably could make up your viewing list's from there, I haven't tried anything like that but it is worth a shot. Cheers Robert

Hopefully see all of you there.

That's for that. I'll make a note for the future.

Will take some time to have a look through possible targets

Looks like my wife is coming up on Saturday. I have paid for a cabin (Shared as usual with Andy) but will be in thee tent with CHristopher, except Saturday night where she will take over the tend and I will cabin it.


For Malcolm, can I just do up a form and pay for her on Saturday, just in case she does not make it?

Thanks, I am hoping for her to come up so we will play it by ear, it is looking likely though. I am sure she will want Pav too!

Hello Everyone.
Just looking at the forecast...umm...


Who bought new astro gear?


Should we be planning some form of appeasement to the cloud gods?



Jokes aside, looking forward to saying hi again to those i remember, and of course meating new faces as well.


Drew
