With the SAS astro-imaging competition looming ...
Andrew Johnson treated the society members and guests to his journey through astro-imaging. He retold his story passing on tips and advice that he had acquired over time. He also illustrated the progress he had made and shared the equipment he is using, answering questions well after the talk was over. I am sure it will save hours of frustration and hopefully inspire others to follow in his footsteps. Earlier in the evening saw Stan shared his views of the sun spots before the cloud moved in, while later the last few departing members were treated to the wonderful sight of the crescent moon playing hide and seek with the clouds, watched over by Venus and Jupiter - a number even tried to capture a snap or two.
However you celebrated the following day (?) Pete Williamson FRAS and Steve Szwajkun attempted to treat the people of Whittingham to some solar observing as part of International Sun Day. The clouds again proved a problem but the scent from the plant stalls in the castle grounds proved a bonus. Watch this space for further events.
