  1. Imagine, you want to do some observing but the sky is cloudy so instead you peruse the books in your library and find original copper printing plates for one of the oldest astronomy catalogues in the world! If that is not enough, it turns out that the catalogue was never published so it is not only ultra rare but also extremely valuable. That is what happened at the Godlee observatory where Manchester Astronomical Society meet regularly. Some people have all the luck!
