Our next meeting is on Thursday 29th January at 6:30pm. The speaker for the night will be Mr M. Perkins of the school with a talk entitled “A Beginners Guide to Astro-Photography”. We shall look at the basics of what it is and how to get started. We shall have a look at some simple projects to try with your own cameras and also move into a little Planetary imaging using a webcam as requested by a couple of our members towards the end of last year. We shall round off with a brief look at CCD cameras. After the talk there will be chance if clear to do a spot of comet hunting, if not there will be a brief what’s up / news report.
