Matty,

Nice set up.

Before I  retired,  I traveled a few times to Cheltenham UK and stayed at a small hotel in the Cotswolds (spelling?). In the fall, it seemed the skies were always quite nice.

Was cloudy 20 miles north west of Cardiff last night, hope you had better luck in your location. ubetcha.gif

 

I've given up faith in the weather forecasters here, even the UK's  "Clear Outside" area specific site dedicated to Astronomy.

 

Where abouts are you visiting in Wales, if you don't mind me asking ?
