Starfest 2018

Post by Gary Hinks » August 5th, 2018, 6:26 am

Hi everyone

Just checking to see if any other London Centre members are planning on going to Starfest this year. I hope to arrive on Friday morning. Right now the latest forecast for both nights is looking good. Let's hope it stays that way!

Clear skies, Gary hinks

Thanks Ryan

I'm not sure if I will be able to utilize it, as most of the time I seem to evade a dew problem here at the observatory. And I really do not do much imaging, however I did get a decent shot with my Pentax Friday night (with the help of Martin P) of the Milky Way It was fun to finally have a go with this camera as it can track the night sky for several minutes despite being on a fixed tripod

Nice to see a few other members at Starfest, sadly not like the numbers we used to have

Thanks for the good visits, and observing Mike R.

Gary H
