    I might go and give it a go, trouble is the forecast looks pretty bad, so it might be a write off (heavy cloud, rain etc in the evening).

    Forgot about this. Would love to know of any good spots, might bring my equipment into work and see where the night takes me.

    Just walked back from the pub and the moon is beautiful tonight - tomorrow should be good.

    I bought a New Nikon D7100 DSLR a few years ago but i have been rather lazy and forgot the manual settings i used to use on my D80, I will check out some setting for taking photos of the moon later this afternoon. Though looking at the weather forecast it may be a lost cause.

    Yeah I'm just coming back from London now, it's starting to cloud over, storms forecast for tonight so it could still be good, but I doubt we'll see the moon, I just checked a bunch of my fave spots all over the southwest to see if it's worth driving somewhere to get a shot - but there's heavy rain forecast all evening in all of the spots.
