4) Video   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JRoFUj0cNt8

Sean found this video, it’s genuinely interesting (if a bit alternative in delivery). It’s from an experienced Astrophotographer who wondered if it would be possible to take shots with a £600 budget set up that were as good as his £6000 set up. (spolier alert) He almost succeeded.

N.B. The video is quite long so it is suggested you watch it in advance.

5) Any new kit to discuss? …
