CAS founder, Stuart Atkinson was our guest speaker this month and gave us an excellent talk on Visions of Mars. Stuarts presentation was packed with fantastic pictures of Mars and gave a real perspective on the way space probes and landers have changed our view of the Red Planet. You can find links to all Stuart's online work, and there's lots of it, over at Cumbrian Sky or Stuart's homepage. It was great to see Stuart and Stella again and we look forward to welcoming them to future CAS meetings.
New CAS member Peter Nicholson also provided an update on the new CAS telescope and some really useful beginners insights into preparing for and observing session.
Chris provided the usual update on space and astronomy news. If you missed it you can use the following link to view September's CAS News Presentation.
Hope to see you at the October CAS meeting.
