Over 50 people attended the regular observing session meeting on Saturday, 22 March 2014 at Rodington Village Hall.
Committee member, Mandy Bailey, gave a follow up talk to last month's talk by Steve Szwajkun about the National Schools Observatory (NSO) telescope. This month, Mandy detailed how observations could be requested and how the resulting images could be processed. This image is an NSO image of M1, the 'Crab Nebula' and has been processed br Shropshire AS member, Andrew Johnson.
Despite earlier clouds, observing conditions after Mandy's talk were very good. Again, Andrew demonstrated his imaging skills. This time using his own equipment, he captured this image of the 'Leo Triplet' of galaxies - M65 (NCG 3623), M66 (NGC 3627) and NGC3628.
