CAS October Meeting

The next meeting of the Cockermouth Astronomy Society will be on Tuesday 28th October 2014 at 7.30pm in the St Joseph's Church Hall.

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.

Telescope for sale

The society has been contacted by someone who wishes to sell a telescope. The scope is a Sky-watcher SkyHawk 1145P SynScan AZ Goto telescope. It's a newtonian reflector with a 4.5 inch aperture, mounted on an alt-azimuth mount with motor drive and computerised 'goto' controller.

I'm told the telescope has not been used and is still in it's original packaging, although I haven't seen the 'scope myself. The seller is asking £190.

If anyone is interested in buying it please email me and I'll put you in touch with the seller.
