I would just like to take the opportunity to point you all in the direction of the Irregular Astro Camp 2012.
This will be held over the weekend of 7th-9th September 2012 and should be a fun, informal and relaxed weekend of dark sky observation, talks, pubquiz and bbq all being held in the village of Cwmdu in the Brecon Beacons. I will be running the blog here http://2012iac.wordpress.com/ which will feature updates and news, as well interviews and insights over the weekend itself.
