Tonight's talk is entitled Triumphs of voyager. Members Free. Guests £3 each or £5 family ticket. Paul's talks are usually busy so we advise you arrive early. If clear after the event we will move to our dark sky observing site @ Badger Farm (a couple of miles away) for some practical observing, most of our members have telescopes and are happy to let the general public view the heavens. All very welcome. Hope to see you there..

  3. IMPORTANT NOTICE Saturday's ELAC meeting on the 19th September will be at SCAMBLESBY VILLAGE HALL, South St. Scamlesby, Louth, LN12 9XF where Paul Money will be the guest speaker. Parking is in front of the school on Old Main Road and the village hall is just round the corner on South Street. I'm sorry for the short notice but the Barn is unavailable. I think this will be a more comfortable venue and only a short drive to Badger Farm for observing afterwards if clear. Thank you

  20. Hello from the even darker skies of Lincolnshire, I also have a 120 frac on a EQ3-2 with motor drives. The tracking certainly does make life a little easier Sent from my BlackBerry 9300 using Tapatalk
  21. I also enjoy the challenge that mercury provides, not much to see in the telescope due to the proximity to the sun but I love to see it all the same.. Sent from my BlackBerry 9300 using Tapatalk
  22. Yes jupiter certainly is the king of the planets, and in my opinion far better in the EP than saturn, I'm sure others will disagree with that tho... Sent from my BlackBerry 9300 using Tapatalk
