Thanks Nick. It’s working well.5 June 2021 at 4:07 pm #584292
Looks good, after a clear sky this morning its a bit cloudy in South Wales, looking forward to watching the feed Thursday5 June 2021 at 4:40 pm #584293Grant PrivettParticipant
Still going.5 June 2021 at 8:52 pm #584294
This is the set-up I’m using for the live stream. It is a Megrez 72 FD refractor on a NEQ6 with an IP camera module which feeds video directly into OBS via a long PoE Ethernet cable and then on to Youtube. It’s the first time I’ve tried this and it was far too easy! Hopefully the weather will play ball on Thursday.8 June 2021 at 10:25 pm #584307
This is the link for my eclipse livestream on Thursday morning https://youtu.be/DtqzzB5xAF8. The forecast for here looks encouraging at the moment.10 June 2021 at 6:21 am #584309Paul Anthony BrierleyParticipant
I hope everyone gets a good view. Here, and I hope Jeremy doesn’t have any. My skies are totally obscured by the dreaded cloud. It might start to break up later but at the moment it’s solid.10 June 2021 at 8:32 am #584311
Very cloudy in Chelmsford at the moment after a cloudless day yesterday. Weather satellite shows it clear at the moment up the east coast and in the North Sea and a few clear patches elsewhere. Fingers crossed for some breaks later.10 June 2021 at 9:41 am #584312Peter MulliganParticipant

Getting a few glimpses here in Cheshire. Also plenty of time to read the splendid June Journal which was delivered an hour ago.10 June 2021 at 11:37 am #584315Robin LeadbeaterParticipant
Against all odds there is actually intermittent sun here10 June 2021 at 11:47 am #584316Gary PoynerParticipant
Solar Eclipse. Breaks in cloud. TMS with tea and digestive biscuits.
Life is sweet..

Gary. Aren’t you at the ground? I was looking forward to an eclipse drawing from the posh stand at Edgbaston.10 June 2021 at 12:02 pm #584318Stewart MooreParticipant
Clear here (Thorpe-le-Soken, Essex) until a few seconds past maximum then intermittent. Excellent view through a variety of filters / instruments. Most pleasing view lying back on a sun lounger and viewing through 1999 eclipse shades whilst drinking coffee.10 June 2021 at 12:33 pm #584319Richard McKimParticipant
I had an excellent view from Upper Benefield, Northants., though there were spells of cloud at times. I was able to time 1st and 2nd contacts with a 80 mm OG by direct vision. A pity the two sunspots visible are so small. There were several parts of the lunar limb showing irregularities. I hope others enjoyed the view.10 June 2021 at 1:18 pm #584320Grant PrivettParticipant
Small breaks in cloud from Broad Chalke near Salsibury. Got one or two tolerable pics. Very civilised time here: feet up, glasses on and a cup of tea in hand as we sat in deck chairs and gawped.10 June 2021 at 1:33 pm #584321
low cloud and drizzle, watched Nicks excellent video feed and NASA tv10 June 2021 at 1:59 pm #584322Gary PoynerParticipant
Nope. Thought long and hard but decided not to apply for tickets. I would never have got my small Dob in anyway 😉

Some views throughout here at Tarbatness both NE and 102mm Mak+solar film. Cloud was thick at times but more attenuated after maximum eclipse. Clear, sunny and warm now! Liz watched the event NE via reflection from the glass coffee table with the sun behind thin cloud.So simple, looking down rather than up and without neck strain.
