North Lincs Astro club meeting. 5th March 2012

A good turn out of around 25 members attended the 1 year anniversary meeting of the North Lincs Astronomy club. This included 6 new enthusiastic members.

Under clear skies, a nice selection of several telescopes and binoculars gave great views of Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and Mars.

Thanks as always to the Lincolnshire Wildlife trust for use of the farings venue ands refreshments

Northern Optics was in attendance with a selection of binoculars and accessories to purchase on the night. Items bought at a discount were a Celestron LCM 114 telescope, Ostara Elinor 8×45 binoculars, Skywatcher SP6.3mm eyepiece, Canon EOSĀ  t-ring and an Ostara 2″ Moon / Skyglow filter. Northern Optics also contributed to the raffle draw

As well as looking into the skies, it was also a great night for socialising with other members over a cup of tea and biscuits

Many new members got valuable advice on telescopes and digital imaging. Hopefully this will give them inspirationĀ 

Overall this was the most successful and enjoyable meeting yet for all concerned
