August meeting

By general agreement Pete Ashtead’s talk on ‘X-planes and the space race’ was right up there with the best we’ve had. His presentation kept us riveted throughout. Thanks Pete! A winner.

As it turns out we broke our attendance record at last night’s meeting with 50 people turning out for the treat. There was a great buzz at break time. We welcomed several visitors and four new members joined us.

Lot of us had observed a good number of Perseids, including the group who met at our field on 13th.

We decided not to hire a coach for the trip to the Hubble exhibition due to the cost.

At next month’s meeting we will be taking the names of those interested in the basic DSLR imaging workshop we’re hoping to hold on 16 November in Marston Magna Village Hall. This will be led by Tony Morris from the BAA who has written a book on the subject. (We expect by then to be able to confirm the workshop) Cost will be £10 for members and £15 for non members. Numbers will be limited to 25. Please bring your payment to next month’s meeting.

Finally, thanks to Zena and helpers for refreshment, Bob and Arthur for their presentations and Bill for sharing his images of the Bubble nebula and especially the new supernova in Delphinus.
(Thanks too, to those who offered to hang on to those library books for me.) :-)

Clear skies,
