Autumn Kelling.
« on: 20:14:13, 23 August, 2013 »
Yes I know it's still week's away. But I'm starting to get excited at the prospect off a weekend of dark, crisp, Norfolk skies. I'm of for two week's so I can take in Kelling and PSP.

I'll be taking the mighty G11/C9.25 and all the imaging gear. Together with, my little grab and go for daytime Solar. And I hope some widefield Milky Way sky portraits.

I and t'other Paul will be arriving sometime on Friday afternoon. I can't wait.

Who's going this year to Kelling?

I wish we were getting their earlier. But we could not get on our pitch before Friday.
It's looking like there are a good number of UKAI members going this year. I will attempt to try to say hello.

I had an excellent time at Kelling. It was a fantastic social occasion and I met many online friends. It was great to finally meet up with Paul and Lee.

On the Saturday morning I woke up to find the following attached to my tent.



It was a day or two before anyone admitted to doing it. It did cause much laughter so thanks for that Carole. Sorry for accusing you Phil :embarrass:

The Sunday night was clear all night but unfortunately all my images via an astrotrac were trailed. On further investigation it seems my polar scope was out of collimation which I have now hopefully corrected.

Here are a couple of images which only look OK in small size but I do intend to redo them.





Both taken with a 200mm lens and DSLR, the second one with a 12 nm Ha filter.

Once Dave found out it was me , every time I left my tent I was wondering what I was going to find upon my return. 

Apparently they discussed swapping the contents of my tent with those of my camping observatory. 
Glad they didn't!!!!
