  1. Congratulations everyone An excellent start. Am looking forward to the next competition.
  2. Is there a graphic artist in the house? We will be building a website for StarGaZine so need a logo (will happily pay the going rate) so if you can help, please contact us.
  3. This Sunday 24th May at 8pm, we are launching the first of an ongoing series of virtual astronomy talks, workshops and presentations at 'StarGaZine'. You can attend StarGaZine events free of charge via the Zoom video communications platform. For our very first event (Sunday 8pm) Steve Richards / @steppenwolf will provide his talk 'Making Every Photon Count: An Introduction to Deep Sky Imaging for Observers'. His beginner-friendly talk will explain the equipment and techniques necessary to successfully capture deep sky targets. After the talk there will be a Q&A session. The following week (Sunday 31st May) Nik Szymanek will provide a talk followed by a Q&A session. After that, we are working on a week long imaging conference with a speaker every night covering specific topics. Dates, speakers and topics will be announced later. Initially the talks focus on astrophotography but, ongoing, we will cover a wide range of astronomy subjects. Why are we launching StarGaZine when we already have StarGazersLounge? There are several reasons but primarily it is because: During the pandemic we cannot have a SGL Star Party. Many regular astronomy society meets are also not happening. The usual astronomy fairs and shows are cancelled. It will compliment and enhance SGL. It will promote astronomy to a wider audience. It will be fun @daz has agreed to be host. @Grant will cover the techy stuff and some general organisation. Ian King will help us find and book speakers. @FLO will cover the costs (i.e. speaker fees, Zoom license, equipment required, etc). If you have suggestions or know someone who might be interested in providing a talk, workshop or presentation, please let us know. As I type this Grant is hosting an outreach event, via Zoom, using the Ikarus Ovservatory setup at Pixel Skies in Castilléjar, Spain. But he'll be along later to explain how to find and access StarGaZine events. We hope you will join us
  4. I am hijacking the sponsor section because it has a lot of followers and it is important we let as many people as possible know that heavy rain and flooding has prevented us from holding this year's SGL Star Party If you know someone who has booked a pitch please check they know.
  5. We are gutted too. Not just because we won't be able to meet everyone but because it takes a tremendous amount of thought and energy to put together an event like this. Am especially thinking of you @Grant and those who helped you.
