OK, so who bought what and how many weeks of cloud are we to expect.

I didn't buy anything, but I confess to a purchase this morning that wasn't available at Astrofest.   Been admiring the Astrodon NB filters for ages, but can't justify the expense.

Baader have produced some 3.5nm Ha filters and the 1.25" has just become available it costing £210, and  Astrodon 3nm are £573. 

The Baader ones are apparently enforced (whatever that means), but I thought I'd give it a try.

What's a NASA Patch, or is it a badge or something.
