Subjects range from the latest technical developments in astronomy research to practical demonstration on how to set up your telescope. We try to accommodate both beginners and the more competent members’ interests.
Notable speakers include Dr Allan Chapman of Oxford University, as well as leading scientists and experts at the cutting edge of astronomical research.
Recent members presentations have included:- Binocular astronomy, The Space Shuttle missions. We also get involved in an annual quiz night and occasional BBQ evenings.
Meeting are on the first Monday of each month and start about 7.45pm (doors open at 7.30pm), with a coffee break between talks so that members and guests can chat, ending at about 9.15pm. Exceptions are the Bank Holidays when the meeting takes place on the Monday following.
