Turn Left at Orion by Guy Consolmagno and
Dan M. Davis (Cambridge University Press) – Sept 2011 edition available from Amazon.co.uk. ISBN: 978-0-521-15397-3. This book is ideal for anyone intending to start observing with binoculars or a telescope.
For further information contact beginners organiser, John Dunthorne.
The programme is subject to alteration because if there is a clear evening we would want to take advantage of it to do some observing. This could include giving participants the opportunity to operate some of the telescopes. In that situation the scheduled talk might be postponed.
We will start at 7.30 and serve hot drinks and biscuits during the evening.
Please remember to wrap-up warmly and
if you bring a torch, one with a red light (e.g. rear cycle light) is preferable. Mobile phone lights are not suitable when observing.
Admission cost £1 (50p for children and concessions). Hot drink and biscuit 30p.
