Re: Contrail spotting January 2016

Hi! 05/01/16 One photo from today. It was a pity this was the only movement because contrails were forming at much lower altitudes today - around FL250-320 :). Hopefully the same tomorrow. 13:00; VIR93R LGW-CUN FL260+ G-VROS https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/zN5wmPrCWvQuvUGY_iMbfwgHR9eZvreVeyT9U13mS...

Re: Which telescope?

Hi dion, I would highly reccomend the skywatcher 10" dobsonian. Make sure it's this one, not the flextube one because you need to block out the sun shining on the mirrors. Probably the most popular choice among contrailspotters. It's not to heavy and can fit in most small hatchbacks if you plan to t...

Hi, 26/09 High pressure sitting over the UK over the weekend, so thought I'd make the most of it and take the scope to the CPT VOR. Movement and conditions were fantastic throughout the day, so good that I went back for more on Sunday. :D 06:04; DLH439 DFW-FRA FL360 D-AIGV https://lh3.googleusercont...

Re: Contrail spotting April 2015

Hi, 27/04. Photos taken in the Brecon Beacons, Wales. Weather was mostly cloudy, but some gaps in the cloud meant nice contrast. Unfortunately the air was unstable and it was very windy so many photos were scrapped. 14:42; EIN239 LGW-DUB FL320 EI-CVB https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-CO1-yTq50oc/VT...
