Anyone going to Spring Star Party?
« on: 13:58:05, 21 March, 2016 »
Hello everyone,

is there going to be a UKAI section at this spring starparty in April?

I'll not be able to stay overnight I think, but I might be able to be there on the Saturday, would be good to meet Chris and Ade and the others if you'll be there.

Hey Chris that's great, ok I'll try and reach you there, this time I should come alone so I can stay bit longer, I still owe you a beer (or a coffee if you need that instead considering the mountain of cider and beer).

Sadly till last minute I'll not know if I can stay or not, but will try maybe asking to Kelling when I know if they have any last minute cancellation.

Even if during night is cloudy, if clear during day I would not mind bringing the Daystar Chromosphere for some solar HA!

Ok I'll see you there :)

I will almost certainly have my Quark Chromo with me this year, I normally take the FSQ to Kelling which, being a quad, can't be used with a quark but will have the FLT110 this year which can do double duty.

If UPS get their act together I should have an ONAG to play with at Kelling to go with Polemaster and the Feathertouch motorised focuser, none of which have yet seen starlight.
