Lovely view from your backyard, Mark, just a little bit too cloudy for my liking! Going for a holiday in Bright next month and hope to take some gear up to utilise those dark skies for some astrophotography. By the way, welcome to the IIS forum!

Hi Mark. You've got it in the wrong place! It should be on top of that mountain.
Seriously though, great spot and welcome.
Cheers, Richard
