If DSC is cancelled and the forecast remains the same I might go down for just the Sunday night.

Today's update on the weather at Ticehurst on yr.no is:

Friday - partly cloudy until 1am then cloud & rain (up to 4.4 mm) with moderate breeze 6 m/s

Saturday - Rain all day until 7pm then some clear skies until 1am with some cloud but a strong breeze at 12 m/s (I have not learnt all the wind rates but I think 12 m/s is pretty darn strong for our purposes).

Sunday (for those who can stay) - no rain during the daytime and partly cloudy 7pm - 1am and then clear through the rest of the night.  Wind rate 6 m/s

The forecast is changing frequently, at the moment it doesn't look great for those who can only come Friday and Saturday.

We'll make a final decision this evening, can you all make you comments so I know what you are thinking?

I've got a new toy - a data logging Sky Quality Meter.

Last night was too windy for imaging and the transparency was poor (Sahara sand and Iberian smoke) but I left the meter running all night with a dew band to prevent it misting up:



The blip in the curve at 20:30 was caused by a cloud.  Probably the same thing happened at 3:45am.

It'll be disappointing if we don't go but the forecast does look a bit "lively" :(

OMG I didn't know about that.  Need to keep an eye on things over next 24 hours then as no point in going if its going to be really windy and the forecast not great anyway.

I think it's going to be a NO GO in that case, can every-one planning to go keep an eye on this forum and "check in" a) To say you have seen this post and b) Once a decision has been reached.

I will keep in touch with Ray and Dave as they are not on this forum.
