What happens at our meetings?
Doors open at 7:30 main meeting arrival from 7:30 for the meeting due to
start at 8:00 but several club members and friends gather before this to have
a drink and chat in the bar.
Following welcome announcements we give you a brief tour of some
highlights to look out for in the night sky.
Our guest speaker will talk on the subject of the evening for about 45 - 60
minutes. This is followed by questions relating to the talk.
Announcements about forthcoming events follow.
You can then choose from the following activities:
If the weather is clear telescopes and binoculars brought by members
are set up outside for some observation. Members doing so will be
pleased to share their scopes with others.
If you need help with some equipment then now is your chance to bring
it in. Others in our club will be more than willing to help you . Don’t be
shy, we get just as excited about a telescope bought at the charity shop
for £20 as we do one costing many times more.
Just socialise with others - about anything!
We look forward to seeing you. No need to book - just turn up.
