What's Up: October 2021
The next Telescope Workshop will be held on Wednesday 10th November 2021, starting at 19:30. This will be a special evening open to anyone, members and non-members, to give advice on using a telescope or what to buy. These meetings will go ahead regardless of the weather, but do bring warm clothing in case the sky is clear and we go outside. There will be help available for anyone who is thinking about buying a telescope or is experiencing problems with their telescope or just in need of some advice.
If the sky is clear we will go outside to use telescopes so bring your own telescope if you have one or use some of the other members telescopes. There will also be the opportunity for astro chats over tea and biscuits as usual. We ask for a donation of £2 towards the cost of the Hall.
Directions and maps to the hall are located here.
