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!!

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.
