    Hi Mike, welcome to the LAS Forums :-)
    The event at Court Hey Park is definitely still on. I don’t personally know the exact details but I’ll have an ask about for you and we can get the information up on our Stargazing Live page so it’s easy to find too.
    There should be plenty of telescopes about and hopefully it’ll be clear enough to use them. If the weather’s bad, we’ll still be there and you will still be able to see some scopes, just not any stars or planets :-)

    Hi Mike, had an update – come into Court Hey Park at the National Wildflower Centre from Roby Road (same road as Bowring Park Road) which is the A5080 westbound – click here for a Google map – and then everything will be signposted from that point on, but if you have any problems with the signage, you come in the main entrance through the gates, then drive along the road through the park for a minute and we’ll be on the left-hand side. We may not be lit up, especially if it’s clear, but in any case there should be somebody on the gate.
    Sorry that the info was wasn’t immediately available, we’ve been really busy preparing for all of this week’s events and it got missed.

    Hi There

    I have just joined the forum and am looking at coming over to the meeting tonight. If I bring my small scope along (Skywatcher 127) will there be someone to give me a few pointers on using it?

    If you’re not sure who to talk to when you get there, ask for Dave Galvin or Brendan Martin

    Thanks Mark

    I did make it, and spoke to Brendan briefly.

    I will try to get to the Ness Gardens event as that is on my doorstep.

    Did a bit of “stargazing” on Saturday night as the sky was clear. Managed to get a good view of Jupiter and of the Orion Nebula.

    Glad you found us :-) Did you have a good night?
    Yes, Jupiter’s in a good place at the moment being so high up in the sky, as is Orion later in the evening.

    I had the Missus and son in tow and yes we all enjoyed it.

    If the sky stays clear ( and I’m not too late getting out of work) then I might get the scope out again tonight and try to get some pics
