I am delighted to announce that the club has a new telescope, which will be available for loan to members.
On October 28th, we’ll be introducing you to this fine instrument. We’ll tell you about how it was made, and how each of you will be able to use it in your own backyards. Weather permitting, we could even take it outside and have a look at the sky!
If you have your membership card with you, you’ll have a chance to win your own hardback copy of The Night Sky Month by Month.
You’ll also be able to hear about (and sign up for) our 2nd Annual Christmas Dinner at the Bay Inn – it was a great success last year. This year, it’s on Tue December 16th, and you can pay your £5 deposit to Priti on 28th October, or by the 25th November at the latest. The total cost (including deposit) is £12.95 for 3 courses per person.
Our next meeting is at the Kabin, on Tuesday 23rd September, at 7.45pm.
The subject is The Universe and Me and our guest speaker is Andy Lawrence, Regius Professor of Astronomy, University of Edinburgh. This will be his first visit to our club, so I hope you can all give him a warm welcome.
The members-only book draw will be back, so don’t forget your membership cards if you want a chance to win The Night Sky – Month by Month.
