Great meeting at Sidmouth

Posted by Robin Leadbeater at 12:44 on 2010 Sep 11

A big Thanks! to everyone who made it such a great meeting last weekend. Despite fighting a high wind and equipment gremlins and having to chase gaps in the clouds, eventually some low and high resolution spectroscopy was done at this historic site. Also a potentially important 90 year old plate showing a spectrum of epsilon Aurigae was unearthed in the archives. (see attached) Robin

Thanks Callum,I had got the file size down below 150k but I got caught out by the 800x800 limit. images of the epsilon Aurigae spectrum are now attached to the original post and here is another image of me setting up my spectrograph at NLORobin

To attach the image, browse for it (obvious), then hit the '[img]' button (non-obvious) before going to preview or submit. It's probably a good idea to preview before submitting so you can check it's there.

To attach files I use Tinypichttp://tinypic.com/Upload the file from your computer onto there and click the second window "for message boards". The file will then paste over here when you use the "reply" option on this forum.

Robin (L) - probably the file was too big or the image size too large. To use the [img] tag - has to be at most 800x800 and less than 150kb.I expect this would be the problem - Gary had something similar recently.Regards, Callum
