Meetings this Friday/Saturday 16/17 October

Recommended Posts

Our next INTRODUCTION TO ASTRONOMY evening will be held this Friday 16th October 2015 from 7:30 pm onwards at The Friends Meeting House, St. Helens Street, Derby, DE1 3GY. The agenda for this meeting will be: 7:30-7:45 What's in the Night Sky, 7:45-8:30 A Beginner's Guide to the Planets presented by Anthony Southwell, 8:30-8:45 Astronomy News, 8:45-9:00 Coffee Break, 9:00-9:45 Practical Astronomy: Eyepieces and Filters presented by Mike Dumelow. If you need help and advice with a telescope or binoculars then why not bring them along to the meeting and a member of the society will try to help. If it's clear the meeting will shift outside and there will be an opportunity to look through a telescope from the back garden of The Friends Meeting House, or feel free to bring and use your own. The idea of these introductory meetings is to allow people more time to have their questions about astronomy answered and discuss things at a greater length than at our 'main' meetings. There is a collection which helps pay for the rental of the Friend's Meeting House which is £1 for members and £3 for non-members. If you would like more details please email Brian Dodson .


Our NEXT OBSERVING SESSION will be held this Saturday 17th October 2015 from 7:30 pm onwards at the Society's Flamsteed Observatory. A variety of telescopes will be available, including the Society's 10" Newtonian under the dome and our 8" Schmidt-Cassegrain outside, as well as any that may be brought along by members. New people are always welcome and you can even bring your own scope! If you would like more details please email Mike Lancaster .
