Astrocamp in less than a month!!!

Back in May, I attended my first Astrocamp in the village of Cwmdu near Abergavenny in South Wales.  I wrote several blog posts during the camp, and left with a determination to go back for more.  Well, bookings opened several weeks ago, and I booked back in to go back to the same pitch.  I can't wait.  In preparation for camp back in May, I created a tick list of objects that I wanted to try to observe.  Now, a little further on in the year, with some of those things now observed and some other constellations around in the night sky, I thought I would tweak that list and update it ready for September.  So, here it is.  As before, it's quite long, but that only means I have plenty of options.  I'm not going to get around them all.  I might find 6 over the weekend, I might find more.  Who knows?
