Big Skies at Big Wood
A big "Thank You" to Peter for organising an improptue observing session Wednesday night.
We made good use of a rare clear night under some wonderful dark skies at Big Wood, to put the new Society Telescope through its paces. I am glad (and a little relieved!) to say it performed impeccably, placing a string of chosen targets in the eyepiece.
The montage shows some of them. Can you identify them? There will be a full report on the observing session at next weeks meeting.
