The final scheduled event of the summer (Sept. 20th) fell victim to quite unseasonably chilly and blustery conditions, with cloud scudding in off the sea, not really conducive for public viewing.

A week later summer had returned and an unscheduled event took place on the 27th. Warm, clearing, transparent skies and benign conditions ensured really good ‘seeing’ for the coast, so objects appeared rather steadier than usual, impressing a steady stream of interested onlookers. Setting up for 6:45pm (which seemed a little odd) to hopefully catch a setting crescent moon, didn't quite go to plan as the moon was hidden by the Royal hotel. You can’t win them all.

Still it was an enjoyable evening and as cloud increased by 9:30 we called it a night.
