    Night and I mean Night shoot

    Any body keen to go and shot the stars and the Planets?

    I know it's late or early notice, but I have only a short time back and was thinking of this Sunday night 22Nd.

    With some of the Planets playing their part, I feel it's a great chance.

    Any one ?

    Well if I was over there I'd love to Roosta. I tried to upload a Stellarium screendump for you but as usual the forum just gives me a red !.

    Pre dawn in the east Mars, Venus and Mercury will be tightly grouped with Jupiter up above them, it's a nice conjunction for Sunday. Visible for you from about 5.15 am. If you can get a good foreground interest object it will look terrific.

    I might be up for it. Where are you thinking? I was supposed to be in Cervantes this weekend but it got postponed so I need to do something different
    Actually, I haven't got your number, I'll drop you a pm.
    Hope the new job is going well?

    Will try to see what the weather is up to, but I was thinking more of early evening rather than very early morning. We need somewhere with out to much ambient light and a good access to the south celestial pole region, or milky way - southern x.

    what do you guys think?

    Sorry guys, looks like the clouds are rolling in thick and fast. Might try to plan something a little more favourable at a latter date.
