Thanks.

It was a bit hit and miss actually Si, there was a persistent fine layer of cloud which kept it from clearing completely, hence the slightly murky brown background sky, but it was just thin enough to get some images in the can. I only took my widefield gear with me, but the boys did manage to get some dso's through the scopes

That has come out really well Ade. Even the red glow in the trees from those ruddy brake light that ruined one of mine.

Si - It was challenging with a lot of high cloud but I managed about 9 hours worth in all. Now wading through them all!
