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.
