Meeting Report - February 2007

February's meeting covered galaxies as the main topic with a talk on the subject from Chris. We also looked forward to Saturday's Lunar Eclipse, which we will be observing from Memorial Garden's in Cockermouth.

The observing targets for the month are galaxies in Ursa Major, namely M81 and M82, M51 and M101. More details on how to find them will be posted on the blog soon. There was mixed success with out targets for February with many people being hampered by almost continuous cloud in Cumbria over the last few weeks. However, Jeremy did manage to get some interesting photos of M65 and M66 in Leo, and both Jeremy and Robin managed to create a movie of Titan in orbit around Saturn.

Thanks to Ian for doing the refreshments and Robin for sorting out the projector at short notice.
