    That’s wonderful. I’ve not had a clear night for at least a few weeks here in Lancaster, but I’m off to Oxfordshire tomorrow, so maybe I’ll have better luck there. Wish you hadn’t stopped using Twitter? It was how I came across your photography in the first place.

      Thanks Colin, I didn’t realise people still checked the twitter feed so I’ll try get my act together! Fingers crossed for clear skies in Oxfordshire. The comet is definitely worth staying up for. I was out till 3am last night shooting the comet from a dark sky location in the Yorkshire Wolds, so I’ll have some more photos up soon.
