WASP 2012 14th - 21st of September

Hi all,

The WASP was a great success this year, congrats to Lyn & Rocco Scali for being a fantastic host & putting up with us all Wink

I arrived up there pretty late in the peace, only getting a few days off work before the start of the School Holidays. The weather was pretty varied & obtuse, but I'm glad to say the torrential rain did not strike, like at last years WASP.

Got some subs of NGC 104, NGC 5139 & the moon @ 100 - 200 ISO, unfortunately my autoguider SBIG ST-I was not behaving so no long exposures this round.

Sandy Galos achieved some pretty spiffy images of Uranus, Ken McEwen very dedicated to his exceptional cable ridden rig I saw imaging M31, M27 & another very faint galaxy which slips my mind but it was faint, we tried spotting it in Doug Parkes scope to no avail. Rolando De Michael doing long scenic exposures with different settings on the DSLR obtained wide landscape shots of the Milkyway with one of Lyn's palm trees silouetted in the foreground.

Posting more as I remember, to many happy hours...
