Hi all.
Well another camp is run and done. The weather did not really play ball but it did get better as he weekend went along. Monday night ended up pretty good for the 10 who hung around.
Big thank you to everyone who came along, and especially to those who heped with the pack up and clean up on Tuesday. Paul B as always did a great job, things just happened without me having to ask. Steve once again wowed us with the spit roast and Paul F and Chris gave our sugar levels a boost with desserts.
At this stage, I have booked in March 20-24 for the first camp next year. New moon is on Tuesday 24th of March. It appears that the Messier night at Heathcote is the Saturday before (14th March) if anyone wants to do both!

Cheers

Malcolm

Thanks to Malcolm and Paul and everyone who helped make another great Snake Valley camp. Good company and even a few hours of very good viewing. Monday night must have been great!

Thanks for a excellent well organized Astro camp. Weather aside it was good to get away and meet some new people.
With help from others I got all my guiding and PC all hooked up and running, but still haven't tested it at night yet.
Also after APP masterclass tutorials I've downloaded and tried the demo. Any commission coming your way? Should be, it was a very good sales pitch.
Anyway can't wait to really give it a go. Looks like a cloudy weekend again so a perfect time.
Thanks again, can't wait for March.
PS
Thanks Malcolm for my physics tutorial about CO2.
It's really helped me get that message across with the real science behind it. Pitty the general public don't get the simple version rather than the distorted propaganda message. (Whoops there goes a can of worms, sorry to get off topic).
Cheers
Andy

Lovely stuff Jen, you certainly are moving on in leaps and bounds.
With a passion as yours there wont be stopping you, well done indeed.

Have to admit Snake Valley Camp is a pretty cool place, must get back there some time to see all you guys, seeing i only live twenty minutes away keep up the good work.

You can start your list for March Malcolm, as I will be there if nothing unforseen happens in the world.
Yeah, nice pics Jen, all your time and effort is starting to pay off.
I got started on my collection of data but not enough to do much with, had a few electrical issues on the Monday night. I have ordered a couple of powered cables, and a powered hub so hopefully that will sort the problems out.

WOW Jen!!! They are cracking images and I can't believe how far you have come, from beginner to master imager and even teacher!!
Great to see the camps are still going strong and a I know its been a few years since I have been but I do miss them but just had so much going on especially at camp times to make it.
Malcolm and Paul and others do a great job and always a good friendly crowd.
Hopefully I can do March or at least a pop in for a visit.

Cheers Daniel.
