Next Meeting

Bob Marriott

THE SILVER-ON-GLASS REVOLUTION

Bob Marriott

For many years - 1991 -2016 - Bob Marrriott was the BAA's Curator of Instruments, and from 2003 - 2017 Director of Instruments and Imaging. Consequently he has a great interest in telescopes and their development over the centuries.
His talk looks at one of the most important aspects of any telescope - the mirror.

Large Binocular

The image shows one of the largest mirrors ever made, one of the pair of the Large Binocular Telescope on Mount Graham, south-eastern Arizona. Each mirror is 8.4 m / 27 ft in diameter!

 

'The Changing View of the Solar System'
will now take place at the February 2019 Meeting

MAGAZINES

Last few years' issues on line - up to November 2018

... now includes "Vol 1 No1"!


There are new details, including a new membership and renewal form as a downloadable PDF, on the ABOUT page

 

A page has been set up in the MENU - OBSERVING - where the maps, details and photographs can now be found

However these outdoor meetings all depend on weather conditions, so arrangements are likely to be made close to any particular date, or could change that day. Consequently having your email and/or mobile phone number is getting more vital as you can be notified up to the minute. So - as we have asked before - anyone who hasn't already done so, (and are willing to do so), please send this and your mobile phone number to - observing@ashastro.co.uk
(This goes to Chairman: Jim Webb; Secretary/Membership Secretary: Alister Innes and Treasurer: Kyri Voskou.)

This means they can text if necessary.

The Facebook page will also be used for the most up-to-date information


OBITUARIES has now moved to its own page.
