Equipment Evening – October 2nd

This Friday will be an equipment evening. The weather is currently looking fantastic for observing, so we are going to try and get out with the telescopes and some camera equipment.

Please bring along whatever equipment you have – whether it is a pair of binoculars, telescope or a planisphere. We will have a couple of talks about the various pieces of equipment, followed by tea and coffee, and then some observing to take advantage of the great weather.

Hope to see you all there!

Apologies for the Lack of Communication

Hi All,

Just a quick apology from myself, Lewis, as I have neglected to reply to the emails in the inbox. I thought I have set it up to redirect them to my personal account, but I did not. I, therefore, did not think we had any.

I am in the process of contacting everyone now. We hope to see some new faces in September.

Regards,

 

Lewis Manuel
