June observing evening.
« on: Jun 19, 2017, 18:34:57 »
     Tomorrow is the June Observing evening which hopefully will be a workshop for anything members ... and others ... may want to get sorted out, such as go-to`s, telescope assembly, imaging problems and the like. Come along to the OVMH, starting at about 20.00 hrs and have a chat about your astronomy problems or about anything else you want to. Looking forward to seeing you there.

     Doug.

Hi Doug,
Nice to see a post on forum.
I would love to come but stuck down here in Worthing although i`ve had
an imaging masterclass down here for a week out very night bar one.
I`m hoping to come to an observing evening in the future as my sisters can
cover looking after dad.
Looking forward to posting more images,see you soon,
Roger

A bad night under the stars is better then the best day under the clouds

     We had a good turn-out, (ten of us), plus a visitor, considering it was a warm and sultry evening, plus some "CLOUD" ..... did I say cloud? ..... that drifted across the sky. Also we had a visitor with her scope that she need help with, so Clive got that sorted. Bob brought his very large Meade and set that up with more help from Clive.

     Thanks to all for turning up and we had a good conversational evening. Even if we don`t do any observing it is still a good time for a social get-together.

Thanks for organizing it Doug!
As you say; a good time had by all.

Is there an imaging workshop coming up?
You mentioned them at last month's meeting, but I didn't hear when or if there is another due.

Thanks Carole:I hadn't seen that.
Will try to make the July one (as I assume there isn't one today).
