A few hardy souls braved the icy and foggy conditions to attend the North Lincolnshire Astronomy meeting on the 6th Feb 2012.
Was nice to see 2 new enthusiastic members. After a period of chatting and tea drinking, the skies cleared to allow some viewing of Jupiter and the Moon. The sub zero temperature and biting wind kept the session short.
Equipment used were 15×70 binoculars, Skywatcher 6″ dob, Skywatcher 130 and a beautiful Tal 4″ refractor on an AZ-4 mount.
Despite the cold conditions, a good time was had by all
As always Northern Optics was in attendance with some bargain prices. Items bought on the night were Ostara comfort straps, Visionary Classic 7×50 binoculars, Celestron UpClose 10×50 binoculars, Binocular tripod adapter and a 7 piece 1.25″ filter set
