Meeting 17th Sept 2007

Postby bwh » 18 Sep 2007, 09:07

Dark by 9 - nearly time for scopes to be brought

Meeting discussed transformation of periscope into telescope - the depths people will go to for this passion.... :)

Trust Megapixel - or was it fierce debate that it not 3 megapixel webcam but just 1 megapixel - subsequent research shows that its 1.3 megapixel for video (avi, 1280x1024) and 3.9 megapixel for single shot (2300x1700)

Trip to Dundee Observatory in offing (8th Oct)

Dark matter (does it exist), Jupiter low and fading - skies quiet as major planets on vacation till Xmas, Messiers and some latest picutres from Bob
