This month our meeting will focus on astroimaging. After the usual update on astronomy news, Dennis will show us how to do some basic image processing. This promises to be a hands on session, those that want to are encouraged to bring along a laptop and Dennis will have some example images we can all work with.
The meeting is on Tuesday 25th November at 7.30pm in St Joseph's Church Hall, Cockermouth.

The title of our main talk will be "Astronomy From Copernicus to Newton" given by a guest speaker David Ramshaw.
There will be the usual update on spaceflight and astronomy news from the past month (almost certainly some Rosetta images) and there is always the opportunity for anyone to come along and share their observing experiences or photographs.
