2017 Programme Update

The 2017 Programme has been updated to include:
  • an extra meeting (Friday, 27-October-2017) - a Telescope Surgery: Learn to use a telescope effectively.

    Setting up a new telescope can be a daunting task, especially for the first time.  Some modern telescopes can make the task easier, but poor instructions and jargon - both astronomy and computer related - can be bewildering if you are not familiar with it.  If you have a telescope and have not figured out how to use it (you are not alone!), or have a problem you don't understand or just want to learn how to use your telescope effectively, this is an event for you.  Bring your telescope along and experienced society members will help you.
The full 2017 Programme of events is available here.

Free Magazines

Sky and Telescope Magazines

We have been offered some free copies of Sky and Telescope magazines. The issues cover the years 1980–1984, 1986–1987 and are described as being “in good condition and mostly complete”. The owner can deliver them to the Burley Hall for one of our regular meetings.
