With a slight change of plans the next meeting of the Long Eaton Astronomical Society will feature guest speaker Dr Julian Onions on Thursday 29th September at 7pm. The change is due to the scheduled speaker Richard Parker of Reaction Engines being unable to attend, instead Richard will be our guest speaker for October.
The talk for this month is as follows:
Aperture Fever – does my mirror look big in this?
After a very brief review of how telescopes work, we look at some of the existing telescopes, both visible and other wavebands, and consider why they are so big, what they can and can’t see and what the telescopes planned for the next few years will deliver.
As usual all are welcome, members free and visitors welcome for a suggested donation of £2. Under 16’s must be accompanied by an adult please. Refreshments will be available from 6:30pm with the talk starting approx 7pm. Afterwards if the weather permits there will be a chance for some observing.
