That's worth considering David. We were thinking about Kielder as usual but that could be a game changer. I will discuss with those on the "dark side" to see if they are interested.

Public Events and News / Galloway Star Camp
« Last post by perthskies on September 08, 2019, 12:02:51 AM »
Just a wee heads up folks. Today we got some great news. As a lot of you may be aware, we have a Star Camp every year at Drumroamin Campsite..
[/size]Well this is our 10th anniversary, and it just happens that a film production team have asked to film us for a mini documentary on Amateur Astronomy in Scotland. I'm so excited at this, I had to share. Please come along and help us celebrate our great hobby.


I know this coincides with Kielder but moon phases dictated dates.

Imaging / Astrophotography / Re: M27 started

Oooh nice start to the season John,whats caused the red line ? Is it an effect of stacking ?
Must have been nice shooting that from your home observatory.

The red line was a bright satellite in one of the red subs.   There are three more very faint ones lurking in there too.  Two green and one blue.   They'll all come out with processing when I'll do it properly.
It felt good to open the obsy again.   Apart from a day spent updating Windows and cleaning everything it's been closed since February.  Bring on the clear nights.  :)

Love it John, as Kathleen said, a great start to the season. Let's hope it is one of many.

Imaging / Astrophotography / M27 started
« Last post by Longjohn54 on August 27, 2019, 04:02:59 PM »
With last night being clear I've started imaging again.   This is a work in progress of M27.
15 x 120 seconds of red and green.   7 x 120 seconds of blue before it went out of sight behind a tree.
No calibration at all (you can tell!), just stacked and stretched to see what I've got so far.   Lots more subs needed!

It is a rather blurry Capella, James.   The NLC's were much more extensive but the low clouds obscured them.  Someone with clearer skies got a much better photo and a video too.  https://stargazerslounge.com/topic/336525-nlc-10th-june/
