Newsletter – September 2019



Welcome to the September edition of this newsletter.


Last month’s Practical Workshop was well attended with a couple of scopes that needed a little guidance on set up. Also a brief chat about astrophotography.

I’m really looking forward to this month’s presentation by Kevin Kilburn. It’s entitled “Double Sunset at Leek, Staffordshire”. I saw this talk some time ago at Keele and I’m looking forward topromises to be a very enlightening talk.


This month’s observing night will be on either 16th or  23rd March depending on the weather.

The next practical workshop is scheduled for Wednesday 21st March. This and any other events are listed on the NSAS Events page.

May I remind everyone that the society solar scope is available throughout the winter too! It is on a monthly basis and there is just a £25 returnable deposit required. Contact me at the email below or see me at the meeting. More details here.

If anyone has any ideas for new features on the website or on any improvements you’d like to see to existing ones then please drop me an email or text.

Also keep an eye on our Facebook page as any breaking news will more than likely appear there first as I can update that from my phone.

Our new members Facebook group is here

The sky maps can be downloaded from here

The next regular meeting is on April 3rd, which is our Annual General Meeting

If anyone has anything they want to include on the website/newsletter/etc then please email me

Wishing you clear skies, Duncan
