A look ahead to our February meeting

Our February meeting will concentrate on Astronomy software. Bill, our resident software guru, has been rooting out the best of free and shareware software out there. I've had a sneak preview of the software today, and there is some amazing stuff out there for free.

Some of the software will be old favourites to many of us, but there are updated versions with new features. Bill will give us a whistle stop tour of the best software, and hopefully we will have a few PC's on hand for people to have some hands on testing after the main talk.

Best of all Bill has put together a FREE CD of all the best software to save you the bother of downloading it all (there's over 600MB in total). Bill's selection includes software for PC's of all ages so there's something for everyone. So come along to our meeting on Tuesday 28th February to tour the universe on your own PC . . . for free!

P.S. If you are a MAC user perhaps you could help us, by letting us know what's available for MACs. We could post an article with links on our website.
