Thanks for posting Angela - sounds like it could be a good evening.

I won't be able to make it though, first week of studies after the Xmas break. :(

I like the man, a very good clear speaker, with obvious passion for the subject.

I'll ask the handbrake if we can go, as I would be interested in this.

Just realised this lecture will be happening now.

Hevelius used a 45 metre focal length refractor!!!

I heard philjay was planning a similar project :)
