Hi all, As a member of the Hertford Astronomy Group I thought I would pass on the invitation to the following event. dag123 Happy New Year to you all. The Hertford Astronomy Group is delighted to invite you to our Stargazing Live Event on Wednesday 8th January at the Cricket Club Pavilion, Ascots Lane, Welwyn Garden City.This is our special event to coincide with the BBC Stargazing Live programmes being shown this week on TV.We welcome you all to come along with some friends if you like to share our enthusiasm for this exciting subject. Starting at 7:00 and going on until 10:00 we have presentations throughout the evening covering Space Weather, the Milky Way and other Galaxies and Space Exploration. The event is suitable for all ages from about 8 years old onwards - children must be accompanied at all times by a responsible adult - there will be some delicate instruments around.Refreshments will be on hand and, hopefully the weather will be clear, telescopes to look through to see some of the wonders of the night sky. There are some amazing sights at this time of year from the wonders of the Orion constellation, the beautiful Pleaides star cluster and even distant galaxies!The majestic Jupiter is in a superb position for observation and if you have never seen it before through a telescope then you must come along and see just how it changes from what looks like a bright star to become an object of wonder and delight.We promise you a fantastic evening even if it is cloudy. There will be lots to see and chat about so come along and be a part of the event that will be exciting the country this week.We look forward to seeing you there.Details of this and much more can be found on our website www.hertsastro.org.uk
Hi folks The group I am part of, called The Flame Trench, recently got a lot of interest in building a remotely accessible AP setup for people who follow us to get involved with. We'll be looking into using it for a lot of outreach, especially with a second telescope carrying out some live observing. More info on the build can be found here. I thought I'd make a thread to show the build as we start to get hardware in and watch it progress! Currently we have a Celestron 6SE w/ EQ-wedge, and a canon DSLR - looking at hooking that up to some web tools to enable some live observations to get the outreach part kicked off early. We'll be looking at somewhere to make the setup semi-permanent or entirely permanent once it's built. I've attached our planned kitlist for the AP setup: Thanks for having a look ? Ben
