    Looks nice Stu, but what is it
  6. Nice video Chris. Pity no room for the the Tak FS60. Couldn't you leave one of the kids behind next time to make room for it?

  8. The BAA is holding a workshop to help you get the best from variable star observing, be it visually (with binoculars or a telescope), with a CCD or DSLR camera or by using a spectroscope. It is open to non-members. The topics covered will include: - Visual observing with binoculars or a telescope - DSLR and CCD observing - What you can learn from spectroscopy The Q&A sessions for all topics will help you find out all you need to know from the speakers and experts on hand. Booking information The workshop costs £2 for BAA and Affiliated Society members, and accompanied young people under 16, and £3 for non-members, to cover refreshments. Lunch is not included as there are plenty of cafes & eating places close by. Spaces are limited. Book online via the BAA shop.
  9. Thanks John. Your disappointment is palpable.
  10. Some more info about observing prospects from the BAA meteor Section here.
  11. BAA Comet Section Director, Nick James, describes what to look out for with this comet over the next couple of months (including a locating chart)
  12. According to this fascinating paper, the answer is Yes! The full Journal of Astronomical History and Heritage paper pre-print can be read here.
  13. Many thanks for the report, Chris. Looks like not too much difference on the targets you looked at. Will be interesting to see how you get on when the transparency is better. There is an image by Nick James taken last night.

    What a lovely instrument Glen! Should make a brilliant travel scope too.
