  1. Yeah I couldn't find anything either, they probably misread it. I'll post a reminder for the AGM on Facebook tomorrow just incase he's not the only one lol. Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  2. That's what I thought but he said it mentioned it on the website but I couldn't see anything. Ah well...Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  3. Hey guys, just had a message on the Facebook page from saying there is something organised for 5th January, but to my knowledge the next meet is the AGM on the 7th. Have I missed something? Sent from my SM-G920F using Tapatalk
  4. I'll bring some A4 sized pieces of card just in case not everyone brings card to make their filter.
  5. Bet if you went a few outside of Dubai you would a wonderful though. [emoji2]
  6. Will be first thing, so about 9ish and then going round to the other classes afterwards. I'm just a touch nervous, as I've never done anything like this before but I'm sure it will be fine. And thank you very much for the support and kind words guys.
  7. Well that's what I mentioned to her teacher and I think we'll make some with my daughter's class. With the rest of the classes they want me to just do a brief explantion of what is happening and why it happens. My biggest issue is trying to keep it simple lol. Jeremy
  8. Hey guys could I get a bit of advice please? I offered to give my daughter's reception class a quick talk on the solar eclipse on Thursday and I've now, somehow been roped into going to each class and giving a 5 mins talk to each class, [emoji33] I was thinking of drawing a poor representation of Earth on the white board and using a ball and torch to simulate the eclipse while giving a brief discription of what is happening. Does this sound ok? I've done anything like this before and I'm really trying to avoid getting to in depth with it. Any advice anyone could give would be appreciated. Oh I also offered our services if they ever want us to do a talk on astronomy and show some of the gear we use. Hope that was ok?

  11. I'm at work tonight [emoji29] unfortunately. That said been busy refurbishing some old game consoles I bought recently, so been über busy [emoji16] Got to try and get out again soon though.
  12. Sam I highly recommended it, it's a good starting point before moving on to star charts.
  13. Typical have power cut on a night like this and both my girls wake up crying.......I'm cursed
  14. Sorry to hear that Damian, but it'll be worth it in the end......when you end up with a 200mm mirror after working it so much
  15. Tbh mate, for that monster I think you'll need to talk to Kieran about some scaffold.
  16. Ended up missing the triple transit this morning, due to a late night with the youngest but well done to those that got to see it. Sent from my GT-I9505 using Tapatalk
