Thanks Paddy
Sunday and Monday have proved nice. Last night stayed clear right through to sunrise with Johns SQM showing a reading of 21.7 at about 1am (which I am told is pretty good. Tonight is still clear but it is a warm and slightly breezy night so a bit harder.
All round a successful camp with some clear skies on all 4 nights!!

Malcolm

Thank you everyone

My first Snake Valley Astronomy Camp. Really enjoyed meeting new people, seeing all the equipment and acquiring lots of knowledge along the way. Glad to have had the chance to get out under the stars, the weather looked daunting for the first few nights but I did manage to capture some DSO around the Orion region. Thrilled to have won the illuminated eyepiece, I've been 'eye-ing' (no pun intended) one off for a while now. Shower tents seems to be the fashion on the field so my next pay packet, you can guess what I'm getting.
Thank you to you all for making me feel welcome and hope to see you at the next one.

Here are some of the photos I took.

Hahaha, Thanks Jen!
No takes a lot more to scare me away. Working in retail during Christmas is where it can get very scary hehehe.

Was nice meeting you and the others, hope to do more S.V Camps in the near future.

Cheers G-)

Another awesome Snake Valley Camp

Thanks everyone for another awesome Snake Valley Camp.

Although it does seem to rain there - a lot

Great to catch up with everyone and learn heaps more stuff. The learning curve is still vertical but I'm making some headway. I took the chance to learn about my new SBig 8300C OSC camera, my new home made auto-focuser and my new Sequence Generator Pro software. Therefore the trip was planned to be mostly a learning and experimental exercise. But Jen pushed me into getting some real data too, which I was pleased about once I got home. Thanks Jen.

And many thanks to Al, for pushing me along the processing track to get this image looking so good. You'll make someone a good wife one day, nag...nag...nag.

And we can't forget to thank Malcolm for all the organizing behind the scenes. These shows don't just happen. It takes lots of hard work but it is really appreciated.

Anyway here's my Galaxy (also posted in the deep space section of IIS)

See you all next trip.
Rex
