Our Next Sunday Observing / Workshop Session

Sunday 6th Januaryr 2019,  Observing on Westleton Common    Time   19:30-late  

This weeks Observing Session is our first Night time Observing of this new year. As there will be very little moon, the dark skies should offer great views of the night skies, for both visual observing and astrophotography.

You dont need a scope.... We have them, just come along and have a look through any number of different types of scope to suit all pockets and viewing preferences.

In the event of inclement weather we will be in the village hall for astro workshops, to be lead by the needs of the members. So if you have questions or problems, let us know before hand, and we will see if we can help.

Important Notice

On a DASH Observing night, observing should be the first priority. That being said after consultation of the local weather trends and people on the ground , and in the event of inclement weather we will be in the village hall for astro workshops, to be lead by the needs of the members. So if you have questions or problems, let us know and we will see if we can help.

 

So your actions on the night should be,  1st :- check the common car park. 2nd :- the village hall.

 

We will endeavour to give as much notice as possible, but the latest will be 3:00pm on the day of observing.
