We were very lucky weather wise - a few good nights. Saturday wasnt looking too great at first but it did clear up and although some patchy clouds remained eventually it cleared and there was some great viewing.

Great weather all round this time.... managed to top up my tan! (hope your face isn't too sore, Ade.... you certainly caught it)

What about that 30" Dob? what was the secondary again..... 8 inches!!!!

Nick's 24" was superb too... shame I didn't manage to compare that with the 30" on the Veil via OIII filter.... but M51 was "in yer face" for sure.

Good to see a few of the stalwarts there.... (Yes Richard... I am talking about you :laugh: )

Phil

P.S. Chris... you'll need a Coleman tent if you want to be on "Coleman Row" in future.... :laugh:
