19 of the regulars were present at the North Lincs astro society meeting for the July 2017 get together at Far Ings visitor centre. We got there early to get some stunning views of the Sun through the club solar telescope. There was so much activity on the Sun, we was spoilt for choice.
Once inside , Damian kicked things off with his constellation of the month talk. For this month it was a brief look at the Northern Crown , Corona Borealis . This was followed by John updating us with all the latest astronomy and space flight news. One day John will remember his glasses… Last but by no means least, Chris gave an excellent in depth talk about eyepieces. This included types of eyepieces and an explanation on eye relief, exit pupil and field of view.
Thanks as always for Glennys for the excellent teas and refreshments, the Lincolnshire wild life trust for the use of the venue and as always yours truly Northern Optics with some bargains on the night, which included an Olivon 8-24mm HR eyepiece, Ostara Dielectric 2″ 90 degree diagonal and other smaller items.
We finished the night discussing ideas for future meetings and other events hosted by members. If you are thinking of coming along for the first time, remember its free entry for your first meeting
