Persisted, wating for the street lights to be switched off around 1am. By 1.45am with the street lights still on and every thing very damp packed up and went indoors, looked out around 10 past 2 to see the street lights go OUT!!!.

Last Friday had a very good evening with a few of the Observers group using the 11" scope in the Victoria Dome, the night sky never got very dark but with the help of Martin who sugested odjects to look at the time past very quickly. A good time was had by all.

One observation I would make, is that when observing with the 11" telescope pointing towards the new dome there is a lot of light comming out of the window at the rear of the building, it would be of help to those using the Victoria Dome if this window could be blacked out at night.



ISS ?Thanks for the welcome you gave me!
